    i would look at 29826 29824 29999 29822 but for sure would need to review the operative note

  2. Default
    yes without seeing the op note

  3. Default
    I would not code 29999 without seeing the op note. And 29822 is bundled in w/ 29824. Check CCI edits.

  4. Default
    Yes, if your carrier follows CCI I would NOT bill 29822 but AAOS and AMA does allow -59

  5. Default
    Most carriers will bundled 29822 in w/ 29824.
