    Default NS- Laminectomy w/ tumor resec.

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code this:
    T6,T7,T8 hemilaminectomy; epidural tumor resection
    I was thinking 63276 but the dr is saying 63046, 63048,63048
    I appreciate any thoughts on this.

    sometimes my doctor will do the same he says that it was also done for spinal stenosis. I believe the 63276 has the HIGHER RBRVS so I would go with that.
