    Lightbulb CCI Edits for Add-On Codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    My colleagues and I are having a debate as to whether the CCI Edits for a Primary Code would also apply to the Add-On code?

    For example:
    63075- C4/C5
    63076- C5/C6
    63081- C4
    63082- C5
    63082- C6

    The edits clearly state that 63075 & 63081 are conflicting. But what about 63076 & 63082? I would assume that the logic suggests that it's still a conflict. However, CCI Edits don't include these in the book.
    Any advice?

    Default cci edits

    this is how i read it; since you can't have 63076 or 63082 without 63075 or 63081 there is no need to list these codes, am i understanding right?
