What CPT code should I use for removal of ectopic bone formation (spine)?
SuperCoder Posted 1 Year(s) ago

Hello

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!
