    Default Capsulotomy with Hammertoe Correction?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi there,

    Can anyone tell me if Capsulotomy (28270) is inclusive to Hammertoe Correction (28285).

    I know Capsulotomy is always bundled with Bunionectomy procedures....
    so I had a feeling it would most likely be bundled with Hammertoe corrections as well.

    My coding system does not reflect a Medicare "bundling" edit for this two procedures.

    I agree. I think they are billable together.
