Iliotibial band syndrome
Our surgeon performed a diagnostic arthroscopy and an open IT band procedure.
He wants to bill 27305 as the primary and 29870-59 as his secondary code.
He feels since 29870 was an unrelated/distinct procedure from the primary procedure code 27305 it should be able to be billed using modifier 59.
I am not sure this is correct coding per CCI.
