Anyone know if 31239 Dacryocystorhinostomy and 68815 Probing of nasolacrimal duct, with or without irrigation; with insertion of tube or stent can be coded together? I don't see any NCCI edits but wasn't sure if insurance would still consider this bundled.

Why were both procedures performed, Manders21? Was the endoscopy not sufficient or was the probing of the duct not sufficient and the second procedure had to be done to get the outcome? Thanks
