spinal instrumentation 2017

CPT code 22851 replaced with 22853/22854, I understand that we can no longer bill 22845, can we still bill posterior instrumentation when billing 22853/22854.

  • Diane,

    I do code posterior instrumentation when performed with an interbody cage 22853 for arthrodesis of interbody. Is there something you read that led you to believe otherwise? I have not seen anything yet to make me think that and I know that they do not hit a CCI edit.
