Thread: Billing for ACL Allograft

  1. #1

    Default Billing for ACL Allograft

    AAPC: Back to School
    What revenue code/CPT combination should be used when the ASC is billing for the ACL allograft? Should 812 be used or 278?

    Use L8699 for the graft and 278 for the revenue code.

    I would use rev code 278 as well, but use 99070 for the cpt code.

    It depends on the payer. Some like L8699, some like 99070. And yes rev code 278

    I use C1762 for the graft and C1713 for the screws/anchors, both with the Rev code 278.
