Hip ITB release and bursectomy bundled?

    Medical Coding Books
    Is a hip iliotibial band release (27006) included in a hip bursectomy (27062)?

    Code 27006 is considered a "separate procedure" which means it would be bundled into another procedure being performed unless there was a separate incision involved.
