Hello- I was wondering if someone can help me out. Is the billing of a
specialty fixation suture using code L8699 on the outpatient facility bill appropriate?
Provider is doing shoulder arthroscopy and knee surgery.

Thanks!

Hi,

From what I can find researching this topic, you will likely need to check with the payer if they prefer L8699 or C1713. Don't forget to check the payment and status indicators.

Hope this helps,
