Diane Posted Tue 04th of August, 2015 17:30:53 PM

ORIF Navicular fx I am not sure if 28465 or 28445? Then he did bone graft to fx site with deminerized bone matrix not sure if 20900 is correct. The he did partial resection of prominence of navicular is 28122 correct? Then the last procedure was repair of talonavicular ligament not sure at all what this code would be????

Please use below mentioned CPT codes:
1. 28465 - For ORIF Navicular Fx.
2. 20900 - For Bone Graft.
3. unlisted CPT 28899 - For repair of Talonavicular Ligament, as there is no specific code for this procedure.

You cannot bill 28122 separately with CPT code 28465, it is getting bundled into 28465 according to CCI edits. Do not forget to provide the proper documentation of unlisted procedure.
