    Default CPT codes 22630 & 63030

    AAPC: Back to School
    Please help. I am getting conflicting information on billing cpt code 22630 & 63030. I have been told that 63030 is bundled in 22630 and then I have been told that you can add a 59 modifier to 63030. Where can I find correct information for this?

    You can find the correct info on this at the CMS website on the CCI edits list. Here's the link, it's pretty self explanatory.

    If the laminectomy is performed for decompression of the spinal cord or nerve roots and this well documented, these two services are billable.

    You can locate the full article in CPT Assistant January 2001.
