Take this advice to avoid messing up your mesh coding: CPT +57267 is an add-on code meant to bill for additional work putting in mesh grafts for procedures where mesh is optional, says Dr. Harry Stuber, who’s teaching at the Coding Institute’s Ob-Gyn Specialty Coding Conference in July.
If the procedure always uses mesh (sling or sacral colpopexy, for example), the mesh is already in the RVU. Don’t use +57267 to bill extra, Dr. Stuber warns.
