Can anyone give any input on the following;

Nurse practioner is preforming a double procedure and says it should be coded as follows:
51729
51797 and 51797-51
51741 and 51741-51
51784-51
51728-51

CCI tells me DO NOT bill 51729 with 51728 under any circumstances, she is only repeating part of the 51729 procedure, should I bill this as 51729 plus 51729-52

I would bill this as follows, although the note would be best to code from.

51729
51741-51
51784-51
51797 (this is an add on code, modifier not needed)

you would NOT bill the 51728

hope that helps :)

Sorry I forgot to include, let me add that the MUE for the following procedures are 1

A MUE value is the maximum units of service set by Medicare that a provider would report under most circumstances for a single beneficiary on a single date of service.

MUE Value: 1

The nurse practioner is doing the complete procedure described by 51729, (good with that) BUT she says she is also (at the same time) going back and re-doing the voiding pressure study - code 51728, which I know we cannot bill together so my question is - Can I bill 51729 AND 51729-52 at the same time?
