Here is a situation we recently come across and I am looking for some feedback.

A septoplasty and ethmoid resection were performed during the same op session. Two weeks later, a debridement was performed in the office.
A debridement is bundled with the septoplasty during the global period.
However, the ethmoid resection doesn't have a global period.

The documentation states the debridement was related to the ethmoid procedure. Would the debridement be reimbursed by Medicare?
:confused:
