wastage of product

  1. Default wastage of product

    Our clinic is using the skin substitute Apligraf which is code Q4101. It comes in one size of 44 cm. It is not reuseable and my question is do I have to identify the amount wasted? 25 cm was used and I don't understand the difference between coding Q4101-KX X 44 and Q4101-KX X 25 AND Q4101-JW X 19. The code Q4101 is per cm.

    Hi Elizabeth
    I am wondering if you ever found information related to billing wasted skin substitutes?
    We've used modifiers JD and JC on the portion applied and JW on the portion wasted.
    Thanks
