Wiki 52500 52276

Separate Procedure

This is NOT my area of expertise ... but ...

CPT 52500 is defined as a separate procedure, so will probably bundle with 52276.
CCI does NOT include spearate procedures in the CCI edits - apprently CCI figures everyone already knows these can only be coded when they are the only thing performed (or performed via a completely separate incision).

Hope that helps.
