    AAPC: Back to School

    I'm new to coding the implants for ACL reconstruction and I was looking for advice for a HCPCS code for a patella allograft used during the procedure the only code I can come up with is C1762.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

    That would work but you might consider using L8699 if your contract with the payer doesn't state you must use something else. Just my thoughts!

    On the facility side, we use Rev Code 0278 unless otherwise instructed by the carrier.
