Because the unlisted code does not identify a specific unit value or service, it is usually reported only once to identify the services provided when performing two or more procedures, which require the use of the same unlisted code. Unit values are not assigned to unlisted codes because the codes do not identify the usual procedural components or the effort/skill required for the service.

I am seeing guidance for the FAI Syndrome/Impingment surgery (prior to 1/1/11) to be billed as follows:
29999
29862
29863

I am seeing many times that the claims are coming in as:
29999
29999
29999
29999
29862
29863

Can someone point me in the right direction in support of the above mentioned guidance-Not billing the same unlisted code numerous times on the same claim? Universal guidance on unlisted codes?

You can email me directly- alison.h.coleman@gmail.com

Thank you.
