3 CPT's codes billing together

Can I bill CPT® 49566 with 49255 and 44005 together?
Per my CCi I Version 16.3 tells me that I only can send 49566.
I feel so sorry for my doctor, he always code those 3 cpts and I cannot submit

The payment for the Lysis of adhesions (44005) and the omentectomy (49255) is included in the payment for the 49566. You can submit the 49566, and get paid for it. To get paid for all three codes would be duplicate payment.

re: 3 CPT's codes billing together

Thank you very much for y'all help. I am so glad that I found this website. I am a RN helping my father in law in his practice (my mother-in-law) passed away, she was the one doing coding & billing. The things that I know about coding and billing was the info that she passed to me. Now I need to take classes, because sometimes I am clueless. Thank you again.

re: 3 CPT's codes billing together

According to my CCI program there is no circumstance that you can bill CPT® 49566 with 44005.

You can bill 49255 with 49566 with a modifier.

You can't bill 49566 with 49255. This states as well there is no circumstance.
