Thread: CPT 25608 includes internal fixation

    Default CPT 25608 includes internal fixation

    AAPC: Back to School
    We cannot bill separately for the implant with cpt 25608, correct?

    Appreciate the info. I am asking because I was told to bill implant separate with L8699.

    why wouldn't you?

    C1713 if screws were used.

    the way I understood any thing that was put in the patient and LEFT in the patient was billable.....

    you cannot bill separately to insert the implant but you should be able to bill for the device itself.
