    Most payers have paid 29877-59 with an appeal letter explaining the seperate compartments... I just found out yesterday that BCBS is recognizing CPT G0289. Good luck

    It is my understanding that in Ohio and Pa Medicare will not accept 29877 but they will accept G0289 however you can use 29877 with a 59 modifier if the chondroplasty was done in a seperate compartment for commercial insurances.

    McCheese, if you are billing for Medicare, you can try
    G0289 instead. That should work for you. Same is the case for 29874 when it comes to MC.
    Hope this helps

    Thank you

    Bill G0289 instead of 29877, when billing w/ 29880 or 29881. That is per AAOS and Medicare and other payers do pay for that as well. I haven't had a problem when billing G0289. This is in CT.

  6. Question
    I am in New Mexico, surgical center and medicare along with most of our payers dont want to pay on either G0289 or 29877 even though documentation supports different compartment. they will only pay it the code is billed by itself
