Thread: non-union code

  1. #1

    Question non-union code

    AAPC: Back to School
    Would it be correct to use an unlisted cpt code for a repair with ORIF for a non-union of clavicle fracture ? As the available code doesn't specify for a non-union.

    Did you look at 23480? Did your surgeon do an osteotomy?
