Kyphoplasty CPT 2017 and Vertebroplasty – Billing for Moderate Sedation is Separate in 2017 Changes

Kyphoplasty CPT 2017 and Vertebroplasty – Billing for Moderate Sedation is Separate in 2017 Changes

Per the AMA CPT Changes: Kyphoplasty CPT 2017 and Vertebroplasty – Billing for Moderate Sedation is Separate in 2017 Changes The 2017 code set revises this code by removing moderate sedation, also called conscious sedation, from this procedure. Use of moderate (conscious) sedation is no longer considered an inherent part of this procedure and you can now report it separately. Prior to the 2017 change, reimbursement for moderate (conscious) sedation was built into the compensation for the procedure as the anesthesia was administered by the same physician or other qualified health care professional who performed the procedure. This code included conscious sedation as an inherent part of providing the service and was not separately reportable. It has been recognized that practice patterns for some procedures have changed, with anesthesia increasingly reported separately by a provider separate from the one who performs the procedure. For this reason, 2017 unbundles moderate (conscious) sedation from hundreds of codes including our codes for Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty: 22510 Percutaneous vertebroplasty (bone biopsy included when performed), 1 vertebral body, unilateral or bilateral injection, inclusive of all imaging guidance; cervicothoracic 22511 Percutaneous vertebroplasty (bone biopsy included when performed), 1 vertebral body, unilateral or bilateral injection, inclusive of all imaging guidance; lumbosacral 22512 Percutaneous vertebroplasty (bone biopsy included when performed), 1 vertebral body, unilateral or bilateral injection, inclusive of all imaging guidance; each additional cervicothoracic or lumbosacral vertebral body (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure) 22513 Percutaneous vertebral augmentation, including cavity creation (fracture reduction and bone biopsy included when performed) using mechanical device (eg, kyphoplasty), 1 vertebral body, unilateral or bilateral cannulation, inclusive of all imaging guidance; thoracic 22514 Percutaneous vertebral augmentation, including cavity creation (fracture reduction and bone biopsy included when performed) using mechanical device (eg, kyphoplasty), 1 vertebral body, unilateral or bilateral cannulation, inclusive of all imaging guidance; lumbar 22515 Percutaneous vertebral augmentation, including cavity creation (fracture reduction and bone biopsy included when performed) using mechanical device (eg, kyphoplasty), 1 vertebral body, unilateral or bilateral cannulation, inclusive of all imaging guidance; each additional thoracic or lumbar vertebral body (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure) 22526 Percutaneous intradiscal electrothermal annuloplasty, unilateral or bilateral including fluoroscopic guidance; single level 22527 Percutaneous intradiscal electrothermal annuloplasty, unilateral or bilateral including fluoroscopic guidance; 1 or more additional levels (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure) Now, to report moderate (conscious) sedation when provided by the same physician or other qualified health care professional who performs the procedure, see new CPT 2017 codes 99151, 99152, or 99153.
