I checked CPT 29837 and 29834 using the Supercoder CCI Edits Checker under Coding Tools and find there are no bundling issues with these two codes. However, when I check NCCI edits on CMS's web site, it does show that 29834 is a column 2 code for 29837. Can you please clarify why the codes don't show a CCI edit under the Edits Checker on Supercoder? Thank you.

Well, it is not bundled but require to append the modifier 51 with the CPT 29834 as per CMS. Hope it helps!
