Our drs perform a vp shunt placement with the neurologists we perform the abd portion of the procedure and some of our physians have been doing them by laparoscopy. We have been using a unlisted procedure but are rec'ing denials. Does anyone have any other codes you have used. Thank you, Jodie

62223-62

Both the neurosurgeon and the general surgeon should be billing the 62223 code with the -62 (co-surgeon) modifier.
