magnatic limb lengthening procedures

Is anyone doing the magnetic limb lengthening procedures? Such as with
PRECICE MAGNETIC LENGTHENING NAIL?

I have found an Aetna policy
http://www.aetna.com/cpb/medical/data/200_299/0220.html) but wondering if you are using the osteotomy codes for
lengthening and the 20696/97 or 20999 and likening it in value to one of the fixator
codes?
