My surgeon did an ACDF at C5-C6 and C6-C7 but also did an artificial disc (TDA) at C4-C5. Can I bill for all three procedures?
Yes, you may bill for different procedures performed at different spinal levels. You may need to append modifier 59 (distinct procedural services) to reflect the separate procedures.
