Replace Breast Implants

  1. Default Replace Breast Implants

    Can anyone tell me if 19380 (Revision of Reconstructed Breast) includes the replacement of breast implants??? My thought is that it does but I can't come up with that in black and white... Does anyone have any edits that show one way or another??? CCI shows 19342 as part of the Greater Picture - does this mean it cannot be billed separately??? Would really appreciate a response today if possible..... Thank you all SO MUCH!!!!
