MENISECTOMY- REQUIREMENT OF AMT REMOVED

Charlene Posted Mon 28th of September, 2015 12:04:11 PM

Doc debrided 10% of posterior horn lateral meniscus. Is there a percentage threshold requirement in order to qualify for menisectomy?

Well, there is no percentage limitation for the meniscus debridement. Codes are based on laterality of meniscus with or without chondral debridement. Hope it helps!
