What NOT to Code for a Spinal Fusion

When coding spinal fusion procedures, it is important to determine which procedures are integral and which are not integral. If the procedure is considered to be integral, then additional, separate codes are NOT assigned. If the procedure is not considered to be integral, then it is appropriate to assign separate codes.

*Pedicle screw instrumentation is included in the spinal fusion.
