re: Ortho coding question

What are the two CPT® codes that you are wanting to report together. This seems inclusive to me, regardless of whether there is a CCI bundling edit or not.

re: Ortho coding question

I thought so too, you are doing one so you can do the other, it seems an itegral part of the second procedure. But when they weren't bundled, it made me second guess myself.
