In my opinion I would not bill 60200, feeling that it would be included in the trach procedure. In this case it looks like there was a previous tract for this procedure and that it was only a remnant of isthmus left identified makes me think the isthmus was divided in a previous surgery anyway. I just don't see how you could prove it was medically necessary to bill it. Hope this helps!
