Hi,Ishvindersingh..can you direct us to that Medicare rule? Are you confusing the 29877 with the 29879?
I have documentation from a coding seminar that I attended that states that the 29879 can be billed/coded per compartment.
I'd say it depends on how comprehensive the documentation is. According to the previous posts it's possible as long as there's a supportive note.So would you agree that if a worker's compensation fee schedule in Illinois follows CCI edits that 29877 should not be paid when billed with 29879 and no different compartment is utilized? Looking for another opinion.
