Thread: Core decompression hip

  1. #1

    Default Core decompression hip

    Hey guys!!! Happy Friday!!

    What are people using for a CPT code for core decompression of the hip? I thought they added a CPT code for this a couple of years ago. I cannot find it - my eyes are blurry.

    I am not aware of any codes for the core decompression. I've been using the unlisted code (27299).

    The most recent Orthopedic Coding Alert also suggests using 27299. There is a HCPCS code for it...S2325, but this not covered by Medicare according to the article.
