    Default intraoperative fracture during total hip replacement

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a md that wants to bill for the repair of the fracture as well as the hip replacement.
    Can you do that?

    First you should check your cci edits - they may be included, so then no.

    I believe medicare says no - heard that at a seminar (Margie Vaught) - commercial payors should have their own policies.
