    Per CCI edits checking codes results in :

    Code / Description
    69222 CLEAN OUT MASTOID CAVITY M Non-Facility RVU: 5.44
    No bundling issues exist

    69436 CREATE EARDRUM OPENING M Non-Facility RVU: 4.18
    No bundling issues exist

    These two code should not have bundling/inclussive issues.
