Replace halo vest, traction, with fluro; dx code

Deborah h Posted Sun 30th of August, 2015 17:04:20 PM

Please let me know what you would code for a replacement of halo vest, traction with fluoroscopic assistance and diagnosis of tectal glioma. Please list cpt codes and dx for this scenario.

CPT code 20661-20664 includes removal of Halo. For replacement (Remove and apply), use the appropriate CPT code for application of Halo. Also, if Halo was applied by another physician and replaced by another, than also, use only single code of application. For Fluoroscopic assistance, use 76000. For Tectal glioma, use ICD-9 191.9
