In the article entitled “Reimbursement Related to a 90-Day Episode of Care for a One or Two-Level Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion” (J Bone Joint Surg Am. 2016 Aug 17;98:1378-84), by Virk et al., there were errors on page 1381. Specifically, the third column in Table V had read “Reimbursement per Patient*” and should have read “Total Reimbursement per Code*.” Additionally, the footnote for Table V had read “*The values are given as the reimbursement, with the percentage of the total reimbursement in parentheses. The total percentage from the top 5 CPT codes is 15.79%” and should have read “*The values are given as the total reimbursement for each code, with the percentage of the total reimbursement of $69,469,550 in parentheses. The total percentage from the top 5 CPT codes is 15.79%.”
