LCD for code 29877

I'm an Insurance Analyst for an orthopaedic group and work all Medicare advantage plans. Well I received a denial for code 29877 stating "THE ICD9 CODES ON THE CLAIM DOES NOT SUPPORT THE BILLED CHARGE". Now the code is billed alone so I know the code is valid per the Medicare guidelines due to it is not billed with any other codes. I just can't find an LCD for the code, if there is one because I've never had this code to deny for this reason before. Please help.
