    Can you charge for lysis of adhesions 44005 if Dr. spends several hours even if bundled?

    Default bundled lysis of adhesions
    You add a 22 modifier to the procedure and attach the op report to get more money for lysis of adhesions. The op report must state how much time it took and why it took so long.
