Foreign Body Removal & Rust Ring Removal

Heather Posted Wed 07th of August, 2013 13:26:43 PM

We had a pt come in with a metalic foreign body. The doctor removed the foreign body and removed the rust ring that was left by the foreign body. Can we bill for both 65222 - Removal of foreign body & 65435 - Removal of rust ring on the same date of service?

Yes,

There is no bundling between these codes and you can continue to report both.
