Thread: 27784 Fixation included with 27758 Open Treatment?

    Default 27784 Fixation included with 27758 Open Treatment?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Just wanted to make sure that 27784 is included with 27758 because it states that with or without fibular fracture. Tried a 51 modifier with op report and UHC still denying bundled.

    Yes, 27758 is open trmt of tibial shaft fx (WITH or without FIBULAR FX). The CPT definition of 27758 includes 27784.
