I was wondering about CPT code 29876 multi-compartmental synovectomy. Is it now considered 'included' when you do a menisectomy? Medicare has denied my claim for this when I included it with my 29880. Any info on this would be great!

According to CCI edits 29876 is in fact included in 29880, if there is some special circumstance, (like maybe separate compartment) you can append a modifier. Hope this helps.
