Hello, Please clear this up for me, here is my would you code for a removal of old dual-chamber pacemaker pulse generator---revision of pacemaker pocket...implantaion of new single chamber ventricular pacemaker pulse generator...... it was coded as 33212, 33222, 33233 is this correct? Isn't 33222 a bundled component of 33233 and a bundled component of 33212? What codes should be used?? Thanks!

this is a bundled procedure when performed with 33233 and the indicator is 0 which means you cannot bypass this edit. Is not separately paid.
