Serial Transverse Enteroplasty Procedure

Cristina Posted Thu 19th of July, 2018 12:01:54 PM
For the STEP procedure we have to use the unlisted code 44799-unlisted procedure, small intestine. What CPT CODE that I can use as a comparison so I can determine the WRVU's for this unlisted procedure?

Hello,

 

You can use CPT code 44680 (Intestinal plication) as the comparison code for the performed procedure (STEP).

 

Note: It depends on payer to payer to compare the most related codes for reimbursement purpose.  

 

Thank you.
