    Default Shoulder Surgery

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can manipulation of shoulder 23700 be billed in addition to other Shoulder Arthroscopy procedures, 29822, 29826, or 29807. According to the CCI edits it has a 1 indicated that a modifier can be allowed. How can i correctly code this without unbundling?

    No. Per the AAOS, 23700 is included in 29822, 29826, or 29807. You could bill for 23700 if it was the only procedure performed for the opposite shoulder.
