2 orthopedic devices receiving AMA codes

Spinal Tech

Since August 22, the American Medical Association issued billing codes for spine and orthopedic technology.

Figur8's sensor fusion system combining inertial measurement system and surface mechanomyography received a category III CPT code. The system was designed to accurately assess muscle function and health. It's the AMA's first recognition for digital physical examinations as a procedure.

PainTEQ's LinQ sacroiliac joint stabilization system earned an upgraded Category I billing code. The system is used for posterior sacroiliac joint fusion. The upgrade from category III coding affirms its clinical efficacy and makes it easier to secure coverage and reimbursement.
