    Question Nerve Wrap Repair

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello Coders!!

    Is anyone familiar with use of a collagen nerve wrap for nerve repair? The surgeons have been given information to use CPT 64910 for use of nerve wrap/tube for repair, however, the dr actually repaired the nerve by suturing it and used the nerve wrap as reinforcement. In this particular case the nerve repaired was a common sensory nerve of the hand and so we feel 64834 should be the proper code in this case.

    Would anyone agree???

    Thank you!
