My provider codes his own surgeries and is trying to bill 22551 with 22554. The procedure performed was:

"Anterior cervical diskectomy and osteophytectomy, c5-6, and anterior cervical arthrodesis with instrumentation and application of local bone graft and threaded machined allograft at c5-6 and c6-7"

I'm thinking that this is ok because he did the diskectomy at c5-6 and the arthrodesis at c5-6 and c6-7.

This is the codes he wants to use:

22551,22554-51,22845,22851,22851-59,20936

Is this correct?
