Gastroschisis 49605

Cathy Posted Mon 30th of November, 2009 12:20:07 PM

Can you bill for tightening the silo on a daily basis until final abd wall closure?

SuperCoder Answered Mon 30th of November, 2009 13:37:11 PM

No, we cannot bill the tightening of silo on a daily basis, because 49605 has a 90 days global period, so the tightening is inclusive.
A separate CPT can be billed if the service is medically necessary and also the service must be separate and significant from this procedure.
