If I receive a denial stating bundled procedure and if I cannot find this code pair in the column 1 & 2 of NCCI edits, where else should I look?


Look in the mutually exclusive code list. The mutually exclusive code edits in the printed version of the CCI Edits Manual are in the same chapter but separate from the column 1/ column 2 correct coding edits. The electronic version of the mutually exclusive code edits that is available on the CMS website can be found in a separate listing at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/NationalCorrectCodInitEd/01_overview.asp, which are arranged by specific chapters.
