Correct code for M-Plasty?

  1. Default Correct code for M-Plasty?
    New Call-to-action
    What's the correct code to bill for M plasty closure? I have read an article that states it should be intermediate or complex code series, but another source says to bill ATT (adjacent tissue transfer) codes 14000-14350. What are ya'll billing for m-plasty?

  2. Default
    M-plasty repairs are controversial as to whether or not they should be coded as adjacent tissue transfer. Because the resultant defect is a straight-line repair, rather than one measurable in square centimeters, physicians need to make the determination independently as to whether an M-plasty constitutes an adjacent tissue transfer versus a complex repair (CPT codes 13100 to 13153).
