Does anyone code for Lipogems Procedure and would you share your experience with it so far? Thanks
20999. Not covered by Insurance
Or maybe 20926?
CPT Assistant (June 2012) describes a procedure billed as 20926 this way: “During this procedure, a total of 20 millileters of fat is harvested from two stab incisions on the lower abdominal area, and the fat is then centrifuged. A fat grafting cannula is used to place the fat for grafting in small ribbon aliquots within the areas of defect.”
Check with payers on whether they cover it.
