I actually have 2 questions about scenerio.

A patient came in for procedure: Was scheduled for Carpel Tunnel Release. Doctor also did a Tenosynectomy of palm and wrist -same hand as CTR. Tenosynectomy was not listed on consent. Can it be billed if not listed on consent?

Another question: Could the Tenosynectomy be billed with CTR? I show it is bundled, and the Tenosynectomy would be the higher paid code. Is this correct?

I appreciate any info.
