    AAPC: Back to School
    Good morning;

    i have a question regarding bundling issues and i cannot find any edits stating that these three codes are not allowed together but something tells me that they might not be.

    They are 29861, 29862 and 29863 - does anyone know if they all three can be allowed at the same time if the documentation supports all three procedures?

    Thanks for any and all input.

    Per the 2010 AAOS Complete Global Service Data, all three services are billable.

    Thanks - i was kind of leaning that way but i have a payer that has denied the 29861 as being bundled and i wanted some backup expertise before i appealed.

    Again, thanks a lot.
