Our surgeon documented anterior inferior labral repairs and then documented posterior inferior repairs. The surgeon wants to report 29806 x 2 and I do not believe that is correct. Will you assist?
Thank you for your question. You are correct in that CPT code 29806 may not be reported twice. You will report 29806-22 once that includes both labral repairs. Remember to increase your standard fee to signify this code is different than the traditional code (no modifier).
