Has anyone had trouble with Medicare denying the C1713 code billed along with 27279. The company for the screw said to bill L8699 but I don't know much about this code so didn't want to change it without some input and more research. Please help..any suggestions?

Looks like both codes (C1713 & L8699) have a status indicator of N and a Payment Indicator of N1 so it rolls up into the CPT 27279 (APC 0425 in 2015 & APC 5125 for 2016)
