How is a spinal hardware block coded?
There is not a specific CPT code for a spinal hardware block. Use an unlisted code 64999. When reporting an unlisted code to describe a procedure or service, it is necessary to submit supporting documentation with the claim to provide an adequate description of the nature, extent, and necessity for the procedure; and the time, effort, and equipment necessary to provide the service.
