    Default 2012 Skin Substitute Codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    According to the 2012 CPT book all skin substitutes will now be billed under the same subset of codes. (Integra, Oasis, Strattice, etc, doesn't matter if it is human or non-human).
    Does anyone know what the new global period will be fore these codes? Any info would be of help. Thanks!

    You download the PFS relative value Files on Medicare's website. That excel file shows the global period. The link is below.
