    Smile Fem-pop bypass with gortex graft

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi, I am trying to code a femoral popliteal bypass with a gortex graft. My provider wants to use the unlisted code 37799 because we can't find the code that includes the gortex graft. Can anyone help?
    Thank you

    Adding onto Kristi's reponse.

    Per Dr. Z book:

    Bypass "with other than vein" includes Bovine, Dacron, PTFE, Gore, umbilical ect.
