2021 Breast Repair and Reconstruction Coding Updates
With nearly 20 code changes in CPT 2021, coding for breast repair and/or reconstruction section (19316-19396) has become more complex.
Along with the code changes the addition of a long introduction and 24 text notes, creates major documentation challenges to the breast repair and/or reconstruction coding.
