15777 does not have a set of codes it must be billed with, however, there are codes it may not be billed with including but not limited incisional and ventral hernias. But remember it is for the implantation of a BIOLOGIC (i.e. alloderm-Q4116). In most cases it is used in breast and abdominal wall repairs (removal of large tumor out of the abdomen).can somebody advise if is there any proper list of primary codes for 15777? we are cluless in terms of this.
This would be an incorrect use of the 15777 code, it is never a stand alone code, it is an add-on code. And it is for implantation of a biologic, not injection. For an injection you would want to use an injection code and look for the specific material that is being injected.thank you
my doctor billed this code by itself for an injection of acell into fistula cavitiy, i guess that what she must bill here is the injection itself right? she injected the acell material in order to granulate the cavity and close off the fistula...
