    Wink Coding for arthroscopic biceps tendon release

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello All,

    What code are you all using for Arthroscopic Biceps Tendon Release. I know there isn't a specific code, but I prefer not to use an unlisted code, is there any other code that you could recommend?

    Default Bicep tendon release

    Without the op note I have to ask if you have looked into 29828 for scope repair.

    We use 29999 for a biceps tenotomy(tendon release) with price reference to 23405. CPT 29828 is for a biceps tenodesis (suture/repair)
