    Default add on code issues

    I am not having trouble with those base codes but I am having trouble with the add ons for those codes for additional levels. I have tried billing them with units and on separate lines.

    Once I sent the documentation to the carriers, they sent additional payment.
    I attended a webinar in October for complex spine cases. I sent it directly to you. I hope you find it helpful!
