    Well NCCI edits say that

    49250 is bundled with 49587 and can not be billed using any modifier however it is a separate procedure and not seeing the op report I really can't give you a proper answer. But definatley not Medicare.

    Was it scheduled prior or was it part of the procedure? Does it warrent a separate dx?
