Harvest Bone Marrow and menisectomy

I need help with billing the above. Can anyone help? I guess the bone marrow is harvested and then mixed with plasma which is then injected into the knee following the menisectomy. This is also a Medicare patient so we aren't even sure if Medicare will pay for this. Any help is appreciated.

    Sounds totally similar to PRP (Plasma Rich Protein), which is blood spun down, and no one I know of pays for that! I would guess it's not covered.
  • You can report it with 0232T (Category III CPT code), but yes, likely no payment at the current time.
