Thread: Dome 30 Wand used in Ortho surgery

  1. #1

    Default Dome 30 Wand used in Ortho surgery

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can the Dome 30 Wand be billed separately from the procedure and if so, what code should be used?

    I've never heard of a Dome Wand, sounds like instrumentation to me and therefore would not be seperately reportable.
