    sure you are if you have documentation to support them.

    I dont know much about them, but I have a co-worker that does these often so I checked with her..for you.

    She said to see codes 15330-15336

    I recently attended a conference and these codes were mentioned but I have never used them, my facility does not do a lot of procedures with this graft but if we get the extra buck and we have documentation why not do it right? thank you so much

    are they doing the graft jackets on shoulders? The reason I ask is because I am taking the cpc-ortho tomorrow 11/8, and I just read something about it in the study guide..not sure if I'd get in trouble if I post.

    If so, send me a PM with your # and I'll call you and read it to you
