    Default 29807 & 29822

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hey there. I billed 29807 and 29822 as they were performed duringthe same procedure. From the sourse I use there is not edits for theses codes being billed out together. One of our local insurance companies is sdenying 29822 as included in 29807. I was wondering if anyone had any information regarding these codes being billed together or might know soemthing I might be mising. Thanks!

    Debridement is included in 29807 however if it is done in a different area with a different icd-9 code you can use the 59.
