  1. Default 29877
    Medical Coding Books
    Back to this code!! One of my doctors did an arthroscopy with tricompartmental debridement w/ adhesiolysis. Would this just be 29877 reported once?

  2. Default
    The CPT code 29877 is only reportable 1 time, regardless of the number of compartments in which it was performed.

  3. Default
    Yes, just the one time.
