Are the following codes correct and can I bill all of them together? Emergency drainage of pericardial effusion (33020), Excision of cardiac foreign body under Cardiopulmonary bypass (33310), Repair of right atrial laceration (33305), Complex repair of Tricuspid valve with multiple artificial Gore-tex suture reconstruction of chordae, leaflet repair, and ring annuloplasty (33464 -22).

As per CCI edits, these codes are bundled into each other. Also, code 33310 is a code for a procedure done without bypass. Please send some more information of the procedure for more clarity on the codes. Thank you.
