    Default RapidLoc Meniscal Repair Anchors

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can the RapidLoc Meniscal Repair Anchors be billed in the ASC setting? If so what code would you use? I am new to ortho and am not sure if this should be included in the procedure or billed out. Thanks.

    Default ortho supplies

    Check the contracts you have with your payers, in my case I send all my supplies (screws, orthocord, and implants) under 99070, the only payer that dont allow me to use 99070 is tricare so in this case i will send everything under L8699. I hope this helps
