$75.77Finger Extension- MANIPULATION, PALMAR FASCIAL CORD (IE, DUPUYTREN'S CORD), POST ENZYME INJECTION (EG, COLLAGENASE), SINGLE CORD  (10 day global)

$39.07In addition to the above procedure codes, physicians treating a Medicare patient typically use XIAFLEX J code 0775 to bill for the cost of the drug at the average selling price (ASP) plus 6 percent.

The above rates are calculated using the final 2012 relative value unit (RVU) for each of the above codes and multiplying it by the 2011 conversion factor (i.e. RVU x conversion factor = reimbursement rate).  Without a change in the law from Congress, Medicare payment rates to providers that are paid under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule will be reduced by 27.4 percent (via the proposed 2012 conversion factor) for services in 2012.  This is the eleventh time the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula has proposed a payment cut although the reductions have been averted through legislation in ten of the past eleven years, with the exception of allowing the reduction to stand in 2002.  

About Dupuytren's contracture Dupuytren's contracture is a chronic condition that affects the connective tissue that lies beneath the skin in the palm. The disease is progressive in nature. Typically, skin pits then nodules develop in the palm as collagen deposits accumulate. As the disease progresses, the collagen deposits form a cord that stretches from the palm of the hand to the base of the finger. Once this cord develops, the patient's fingers contract and the function of the hand is impaired. The incidence of Dupuytren's disease, inclusive of pits, nodules and cords, is highest in Caucasians, historically those of Northern European descent, with a global prevalence of three to six percen
