    My doctor 52353,52332, and 52005 all at the same session. Am I iincorrect in thinking that he can not bill all of these codes. I would think that it would be bundled. Any help would be great.

    According to CCI Edits:

    ** 52332 is a "component" of 52352 but the indicator is (1), which as you may know means that an unbundling modifer (typically 59) can be utilized

    **52005 is a "component" of 52352 and the indicator is (0), which again, as you may know means that these two codes cannot be billed together and cannot be unbundled in any way

    Hope this helps!
