Can anyone help me understand the best way to code this out? I have a provider who did a patella revision and a liner revision of a total knee. My doc wants to bill this as a two component revision-27487 and he doesn't want to add the 52 to the code as he feels that would not pay him appropriately. What would be the correct way to code this out? is this indeed a two component revision? and if so would you add the 52?
any advice would help!

27846 is not enough for the procedure but
27847 is too much because it states entire tibial component. It should be billed as 27847-52 it s a reduction of that procedure code

It has to be coded based upon the procedure not according to reimbursement

I hope this helps
