    Default Percutaneous nephrostolithotomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    Okay, so...the surgeon performed a percutaneous nephrostolithotomy with flouroscopic guidance and then performed an antegrade nephrostogram. So I coded 50080, 76000-26 and 74425-26, but the 76000-26 is being kicked out against the 74425-26. Can someone explain this to me...please?

    76000 is a CCI edit for procedure code 74425 and needs to be billed with a 59 modifier as well
