    Default Total Hip replacement with a femoral neck fx

    I'm looking for help with a question about coding/billing for a femoral neck fracture repair at the time of a Total Hip Replacement. The fracture appeared during the broaching of the femur for the replacement. Can I code for both the fracture repair (27236) and the hip replacement (27130)? The only procedure scheduled was the hip replacement.
    Thanks for any help you can give.

    You should not bill the fracture as it was caused by the doctor braoching the canal. You should only code for the total hip.
