    Question Decompression procedure

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our clinic will be providing a new service called "mild Percutaneous Decompression." The representative said there was a new temporary code 0275T that can be used for billing. I have not found anything on the Medicare website and I am concerned this is investigational and will be denied by Medicare/insurance companies. Does anybody have any insight on this?
