    Is anyone billing 28296 + 28298 together same foot or do you automatically go to 28299?

    Doc did both 28296/735.0 + 28298/735.8 interphalangeus, do you bill both if you have 2 different dx?

    Medicare bundles them but aaos does not.

    Any thoughts would be helpful!

    If you are billing to Medicare go by their CCI. If not them bill them.
