Would you bill for implant removal?

History: Patient had a toe implant. Later it failed.

My doc removed the implant and performed an arthrodesis where the implant was removed.

The codes don't hit an edit, but I am under the impression that if an implant has to be removed to perform the procedure that it would not be billed.

Does that sound right?
