    Default 29822 & 29826

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello all,

    Can 29822 and 29826 be billed for this dx?

    Partial RTC debridement; subacromial decompression with acromioplasty. Op supports it; however W/Comp denied 26826 as duplicate procedure not previously billed or with a different modifier than what was previously billed. This was the first time billing and we billed as:

    29826-dx code 726.2
    29822-59-dx: 840.4

    I'm just a little confused to when to bill 29822

    Thanks for all your help

    What modifier did you use? And yes this can be billed according to the AAOS guidelines.
