29877 done with 29879 Separate Knees

Good morning, has anyone knowledge on billing 29877 on the same DOS as 29879 when done on separate knees.  There is a NCCI edit with status indicator of 0 which indicates the edit cannot be bypassed.  Would this be appealed with records?  Thank you Jody    


  • It cannot be bypassed for the same knee, you can bill this with RT and LT modifiers.
