Two-Level Kyphoplasty

Question:
When doing a T12 & L3 kyphoplasty, are the correct codes 22513 (thoracic) and 22514 (lumbar)?

Answer:
The correct codes are 22513 (thoracic) and +22515 (additional level) for your example. It is not accurate to report two stand-alone codes (22513 and 22514) for procedures performed at the same operative session.
