Thread: achilles tendon repair with graft jacket

  1. #1

    Default achilles tendon repair with graft jacket

    AAPC: Back to School
    my physician performed a repair of the achilles tendon and due to the fact that the tendon was completely disrupted he used a graft jacket to repair, my question is am I allowed to charge the 15330 for the graft?

    For some reason, I remember this question being raised not too long ago.
    And, I believe the answer is "yes", you can bill the 15330.
