I was just told that per AAOS 2010 codes 22630 and 63042 can be submitted together with out a 59 modifier and is not considered inclsuive in the intra-op global services Has anyone in the coding community aware of this possible change,since I have not seen any updates in CPT Assistant?

No CCI bundling issue exists between 22630 and 63042, so can use both the codes without any modifier. I have also cheked previous three quarters, and there no Bundling issue in previous quarters.
