Facetectomy/Foraminotomy C6-7

Nicole Posted Wed 21st of June, 2017 10:56:42 AM
Doctor did the following procedures: C2-C7 Posterior Segment Instrumentation and Fusion (22600, 22614x5) C2-C6 Bilateral Laminectomy, Foraminotomy and Medial Facetectomy (63045, 63048x4) Question is, the C6-C7 Lamina was not removed due to the substantial amount of stenosis, but bilateral foraminotomies and medial facetectomies were done. Is there something that can be billed for that at the C6-C7 level? (I am possibly thinking 63075?)
