My Doctor performed both procedures through the same incision at an outpatient facility on a Medicare patient. Would you bill these two services together to Medicare when ulnar neuropathy has been documented?

CPT Code 64719 is a column 2 code for 64721 and can be billed with -59 modifier with CPT 64721 if your document support separate procedure in terms of different incision or different approach. If this is not the case and both procedures done through same incision and in same session, than you cannot bill CPT 64719 with 64721.
