AMA adds billing code for posterior sacroiliac joint fusion

Spine

The American Medical Association established a Category 1 billing code for posterior sacroiliac joint fusion.

The code upgrades PainTEQ's LinQ SI joint stabilization system from Category 3, the devicemaker said in an Oct. 14 news release. Category 1 codes affirm its clinical efficacy and makes it easier to secure coverage and reimbursement.

"This is great news for both physicians and patients alike," Michael Enxing, president of PainTEQ said in the release. "The new billing code will make it easier for healthcare professionals to streamline reporting, and patients will have greater access to this life-changing treatment."
