    Default chondroplasties

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone tell me what code to use if Dr. did 3 chondroplasies, one on medial, one lateral, and one patellar.
    Do you use G0289X3 or 29877, G0289X2, or 29877X3?

    You can only code 29877 once, no matter how many compartments.


    Hope this helps.
