Care of Tissue Expander Outside the Global Period

September 20, 2018

We are still expanding the TE outside of the global period from the breast reconstruction with placement of the TE.  How do we bill this?

There is not a specific CPT code for doing a tissue expander expansion. Therefore, it is just part of your E/M code for the service you’ve provided on that day.
