Nerve Repair

Nerve Repair

May 23, 2019

Question:
I know that CPT code 64910 is the code I report for a nerve repair of the spine.  My question is when performing this procedure on three levels how to I report this.

Answer:
You would report CPT code 64910 for each level.  Since the second and third levels are bundled under NCCI you would append Modifier 59 to the second and third levels to indicate they are distinct and separate.  Also keep in mind the maximum number of levels you can bill on the same date of service for Medicare is 3.
