I struggle with this question since 29826 has become an add on code. Can we bill a 29826(scope acromioplasty) with a 59 modifier when it's performed with 23412 as long as there is another scope procedure listed (29824, 29822 etc)?

This is for a Medicare patient.

Thanks

Christy

According to my "Coding Alert", the April issue . . . . .
You should NOT report 29826 with an open rotator cuff repair, 23410 or 23412. "In this case, you turn to 29822 or 29823 for the subacromial decompression."

Hope this helps
