    Have you tried printing out the CCI to show that they do not bundle in CMS's own bundling system?!?!? (not that you should have to do that, they are add-on codes as you said).

    If nothing else, appeal up the chain and see what happens.

    Here's a thought: The MCM requires documentation for prolonged care to include the start and stop time (see http://www.cms.hhs.gov/manuals/downloads/clm104c12.pdf) section Was that included in your documentation or just total time?
