Can you code 28285 with 28270? He did an arthrodesis right second interphalangeal joint with a dorsl capsulotomy and a medial capsulotomy. Thanks.

28270 is to be reported with the use of 59 Modifier.

Thanks
I WOULD NOT recommend the use of the 59 modifier when billing 28285 with 28270 as these codes DO NOT BUNDLE and therefore use of the modifier is not indicated/warranted and could possibly flag for an overuse audit. Please be certain to check your CCI edits prior to utilizing this modifier each and every time and make sure that IF it is required, you have the supporting documentation to CYA.
