    Default can you bill 27427 more than once on the same knee
    Medical Coding Books
    My Dr did open reconstruction of the lateral collateral ligament, posterolateral corner, and proximal tibiofibular ligament. He is wanting to bill this times 3 and I am not sure 27427 can be billed more than one time per knee???? If I can only bill once would a 22 modifier be correct??
    Thanks for any help.

    It looks like to append modifier 22 would be best and don't forget to send the claim with the op notes...hope that works for you...
