    Red face hip core decompression

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for some suggestions/guidance. Our surgeon did a hip core decompression. After some investigation I found that we are to us the unlisted hip code 27299. I know there is an S code for this (S2325) but the carrier doesn't recognize S codes
    Problem being is that I am unsure what comparrison code to use????? Is anyone out there billing for this?
    any help is greatly appreciated!!!!
