scope RCR with separate supraspinatus repair

  1. Question scope RCR with separate supraspinatus repair
    Medical Coding Books
    My surgeon is doing subscapularis repair to the lesser tuberosity with one anchor, then he moves the scope to do an acromioplasty, then he repairs supraspinatus and infraspinatus to greater tuberosity with two or more addtl anchors. Is this more than 29827 with 29826? What other code can I use or should I use unlisted? If unlisted, is there something to compare? Thank you very much.

  2. Default
    I would bill 29827 AND 29826. Use your modifiers according to payer. (51 or 59) MCR will not recognize the 51 with this procedure.
