Terms of Use

EXOGEN® Ultrasound Bone Healing System has a specific HCPCS Code: E0760 Osteogenic stimulator, low intensity ultrasound, non-invasive.

CPT code 20979: Application of low intensity ultrasound stimulation to aid in bone healing, noninvasive (non-operative)

Modifier: NU, Purchased new

If billed by Home Health facility: Ultrasonic Osteogenic Stimulator only when the services are submitted on types of bills (TOBs) 32X, 33X, or 34X.

Common ICD-9CM Diagnosis Codes associated with ultrasound bone healing: Fracture, open or closed

* Summary of Indications for Use: The EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System is indicated for the non-invasive treatment of established non-unions† excluding skull and vertebra.

In addition, EXOGEN is indicated for accelerating the time to a healed fracture for fresh, closed, posteriorly displaced distal radius fractures and fresh, closed or Grade I open tibial diaphysis fractures in skeletally mature individuals when these fractures are orthopaedically managed by closed reduction and cast immobilization.

There are no known contraindications for the EXOGEN device. Safety and effectiveness has not been established for individuals lacking skeletal maturity; pregnant or nursing women; patients with cardiac pacemakers; on fractures due to bone cancer; or on patients with poor blood circulation or clotting problems. Some patients may be sensitive to the ultrasound gel. Full prescribing information can be found in product labeling, at or by contacting customer service at 1-800-396-4325.

† A non-union is considered to be established when the fracture site shows no visibly progressive signs of healing.
