Implantation of Biologic Implants

December 19, 2019

Can we use 15777 Implantation of biologic implant (e.g. acellular dermal matrix) for soft tissue reinforcement for other tissues beside the breast or trunk?

Code 15777 specifically points to breast and/or trunk only, as “i.e.” stands for “in other words”. Report code 17999 Unlisted procedure, skin, mucous membrane and subcutaneous tissue, if used in other tissues beside the breast or trunk.

*This response is based on the best information available as of 12/19/19.
