    Question Diep

    AAPC: Back to School
    What is everyone using to code for deep inferior epigastric perforator breast recons? My surgeon trained in LA and they were using a HCPCS code, but is there a CPT code that better describes the procedure? Do any of you have any expereince with the way payers are paying the codes you are using, or have you had discussions with the payer about this procedure?

    19364 is what I was told to use during my conference.

    Default Diep

    Review S2068 for your procedure and see if applies. The carriers will negotiate a rate (outside of the normal contract)
