29876,29877,29874 denied

  1. Question 29876,29877,29874 denied
    Exam Training Packages
    29881(RT) - paid
    29874(RT/59) - denied
    29876(RT/59) - denied
    29877(RT/59) - denied

    CCI edit states that 29874 & 29877 are bundled to 29876 and no modifier is allowed to bypass for reimbursement.

    29876 was performed on the medial & lateral compartments of the knee. Is this payable?

    Can G0289 be used in place of 29874 & 29877?

    I appreciate your assistance.

    It looks like you can uses G0289 for both 29877 and 29874 if done in different compartments form the 29881. Here is the link:
