Hemipelvectomy socket coding

Ingvar Leskovar

Hi all.

I searched low and high and can not find a code for hemi socket. For
entire prosthesis – yes. Not for something that can be called a
“seating socket” as that is all that is needed.
Patient is complete hip disarticulation bilateral with partial pelvis.
No ambulatory device attempted. Wound care is looking into a seating
device though.
Situation is aggravated by uncontrolled diabetes. I am going to have
further discussion with medical team but, at the moment, am stuck
coding something like this. Of course, he is Medicare.
Thank you
