Removal of ectopic bone formation spine

Sandra Posted Fri 04th of August, 2017 10:37:03 AM
What CPT code should I use for removal of ectopic bone formation (spine)?
SuperCoder Answered Tue 08th of August, 2017 08:15:26 AM

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!
