    For arthroscopy, knee, plica resection with chondroplasty, can I bill 29875 with 29877 or does 29877 include the plica resection?

  2. Default
    According to CCI Edits 29877 is a component of 29875, but the compartment in which each procedure was performed will be a major determining factor.

    For the best responses to specific scenario questions, post a HIPPA compliant copy of the operative note.

    Hope this helps!!
