    AAPC: Back to School
    Hey guys, I am new to the Billing and Medical Coding and I am a little confused. I don't really know the codes and all the procedure because i am just starting out. My doctor billed an arthroscopy with the following codes.

    The insurance always denies 29877 and 29874 as inclusive. I know about the 29877 is now billed as G0289 but what about the 29874? Is that inclusive in G0289 or is it payable?

    If anyoane can help me please...... Thank you
