    Dr. did a Bilateral lateral posterior spinal fusion T11-L4
    He said to bill
    22614 X4

    My question is the 22612 (1 level, lumbar) , should it be 22610 (1 level, thor)?

    Thank you

    22612, 22614 x 4 is correct because you should report the stand alone fusion code for the spine region where the majority of the procedure/levels were done.
