What codes are appropriate for ASC?

We were using 20926 and either 20550 or 20551, the most recent info states not to use 20926.

I believe it should be billed as a single injection for PRP including injection. What code is best for ASC?

Thank you in advance,

Dee

Hello,

0232T should be used for PRP injections. 20926 is a stretch for considering PRP a graft and may be incorrect coding. I understand a reimbursement is always wanted, however, this procedure is experimental in nature. We perform them on a routine basis in office and normally require upfront payment for this particular service.

Hello,

Can this be billed to the patient even if there is another procedure being done at the same time at an ASC? I work at an ASC and the big question right now is if the patient is coming in for an already scheduled procedure and the surgeon wants to do a PRP injection can we bill the patient for the PRP injection or is it considered inclusive?

Thank you:eek:

0232T with 20610/20605/20600

Can we code PRP injections with Arthrocentesis, aspiration and/or injection, intermediate joint or bursa (eg, temporomandibular, acromioclavicular, wrist, elbow or ankle, olecranon bursa); without ultrasound guidance as combined ?

Currently, there is a CCI edit between CPT 20610 (column 1) and CPT 0232T (column 2). If the PRP injection was performed at the same site as the joint arthrocentesis, aspiration or injection then I would only bill for CPT 20610. If the PRP injection is at a completely different site then I would bill the PRP injection with a modifier 59.
