    Unhappy what code do i use for sacroplasty

    i have an orthopedic physician that likes to use 27280 for sacroplasty. we are getting denials for this. the only code i found was 0200T, but this is a Category III and medicare will not pay. so he wants a code that will. can anyone help me with this? could i use 22899 with reference to code 22521?

    The code for sacroplasty is 0200T unfortunately. Hopefully if this gets billed enough they will make a permanent code.

    Default ....careful!


    I agree with Jenifer's guidance. The cat III code 0200T is the appropriate way to report sacroplasty. Clearly, if you're concerned with payment, you may want to contact NASS for a position statement on Sacroplasty. If favorable, any payor (including Medicare) would be hard pressed to maintain a denial.

    As an FYI, CPT 27280 is getting a lot of attention in recent months as several new procedures are laying claim to it.

    Good luck,
