Thread: Hyprocure implant

    Question Hyprocure implant

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a physician that is now performing subtalar arthroereisis using the hyprocure implant. He wants to use cpt code 28585 but I don't think this is correct. Is anyone else coding these procedures that can help me?

    28899 is the code you need to use for the Subtalar Arthroereisis. there is also a HCPC of S2117. BCBS is the only plan that I have found, so far that will pay using the S code.

    Those implant sales people give great suggestions to get the sale, too bad sometimes it's WRONG!!
