2021 BILLING AND CODING GUIDE GENERAL SURGERY

2021 Medicare Physician, Hospital Outpatient, ASC Coding and Payment

Rates listed in this guide are based on their respective site of care- physician office, ambulatory surgical center, or hospital outpatient department. All rates provided are for the Medicare National Average rounded to the nearest whole number for 2021 and do not represent adjustment specific to the provider's location or facility. Commercial rates are based on individual contracts. Providers are encouraged to review contracts to verify their specific contracted allowables. Medtronic products associated with general surgery procedures addressed within this guide do not have a dedicated HCPCS1 level II coding assignment. Providers may choose to report A4649 Surgical supply; miscellaneous for purposes of cost tracking. Medicare considers the use of surgical supplies to be included in the payment for the associated CPT, and no additional payment is allowed.

REPAIR OF DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA (HIATAL HERNIA)

Note that fundoplication for associated GERD is coded separately as below.

WITH IMPLANTATION OF MESH

Character 3 is the root operation. When mesh is used to affect the repair, the root operation is U-Supplement because U-Supplement is defined as putting on or in material, such as mesh, that physically reinforces a body part.2 The codes are then further differentiated by the type of mesh.

0BUR07Z

Supplement left diaphragm with synthetic substitute, percutaneous endoscopic approach

0BUS4KZ

Supplement left diaphragm with nonautologous tissue substitute, percutaneous endoscopic approach

WITHOUT IMPLANTATION OF MESH

Character 3 is the root operation. When mesh is not used to affect the repair, the root operation is Q-Repair. This root operation is a default.

0BQR0ZZ

Repair right diaphragm, open approach

0BQRS0ZZ

Repair left diaphragm, open approach

0BQR4ZZ

Repair right diaphragm, percutaneous endoscopic approach

0BQRS4ZZ

Repair left diaphragm, percutaneous endoscopic approach

FUNDOPLICATION (EG, FOR GERD)

Character 3 is the root operation. For fundoplication, the root operation is V-Restriction because V-Restriction is defined as partially closing a lumen.2

0DV40ZZ

Restriction of esophagogastric junction, open approach

0DV44ZZ
