  1. Question Cpt For Sleeve Gastrectomy?? 43659??
    Exam Training Packages
    Hi there coding veterans......
    Does anyone code sleeve gastrectomies and what code do you use. If you use the unlisted code 43659 what $ do you charge. How do you determine what to charge for unlisted procedures.

    Thanks
