What CPT code should I use for removal of ectopic bone formation (spine)?

There is no specific CPT available for ectopic bone formation (spine) removal, instead you may use unlisted CPT code 22899 (Unlisted procedure, spine). Also, when submitting a claim with an unlisted procedure code, you should also send a copy of the documentation and a letter from the physician explaining the surgery or procedure, so the payer can determine reimbursement.
HOPE THIS HELPS!
