Hip Scope Codes...

  1. Default Hip Scope Codes...

    Hey Y'all,

    Has anyone used the new Hip Arthroscopy codes yet? If so, how has the insurances taken them and have you had decent reimbursement? Got a new doc who wants to do them and we're weighing cost vs payment, is it worth it kind of thing...

    Thanks,
    Bruce

    We use the 29916 quite often. I haven't had any of our billers coming to me with payment problems. Hope that helps

    We do. payments is ok. $2,000-$3000. CPT bundles 29915 with 29916 but for a time certain carriers were paying all 3 (29914, 29915, 29916) and now are starting to bundle. ALL carriers pay but Aetna. We have our Aetna patients sign waiver. You lose 29862+29863 with FAI codes which were high $$ (up to $5,000 for 29862 and $3000 for 29863). W/C (NY that is) has not recognized these new codes yet...so we use old ones for now...as per their request.
