Hi Walker,

-20910 is for the harvest of the graft alone. If you were doing a procedure that didn't bundle the graft harvest, you could bill 20910 with it.
-21230 includes graft harvest as well as the repair/reconstruction with placement of the harvested graft. Since 21230 states 'includes obtaining graft' you would not also bill 20910.

I hope that helps!

Thank you much. That does help clear it up for me.
