This is a discussion in our office, the patient has 2 surgeries, (ex. a bladder incision and ureter repair) and one code is not built in to the system, and can not be at this point because of the date of service, they are saying that certain payors will allow you to bill the one code and you don't need to send in the other code, I am sure they as it will save them money, but can someone help me find the guidelines to prove this is incorrect coding ethic.....

thanks ::confused:
