HCPCS code G0289 may be reported in addition to CPT® code 29880, Arthroscopy, knee, surgical; with meniscectomy (media AND lateral, including any meniscal shaving) or CPT® code 29881, Arthroscopy, knee, surgical; with meniscectomy (medial or lateral, including any meniscal shaving)if performed in a separate compartment. Example:
In ICD-10-PCS, arthroscopy goes to the root operation “inspection,” which is defined as visually and/or manually exploring a body part. Therefore, an arthroscopy of the right knee is classified to code 0SJC4ZZ, and arthroscopy of the left knee is classified to code 0SJD4ZZ.

An arthroscopic meniscectomy is a procedure to remove some or all of a meniscus from the tibio-femoral joint of the knee using arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery. The procedure can be a complete meniscectomy where the meniscus and the meniscal rim is removed or partial where only a section of the meniscus is removed.
Report CPT code 29877 (Arthroscopy, knee, surgical; debridement/shaving of articular cartilage [chrondroplasty]) for arthroscopic debridement with presentation of knee pain only, or arthroscopic debridement without lavage for patients with severe osteoarthritis.
The meniscus is a C-shaped piece of tough, rubbery cartilage that acts as a shock absorber between the shinbone and the thighbone. It can be torn if you suddenly twist your knee while bearing weight on it. A torn meniscus is one of the most common knee injuries.
Knee arthroscopy is surgery that uses a tiny camera to look inside your knee. Small cuts are made to insert the camera and small surgical tools into your knee for the procedure. Knee arthroscopy is surgery that is done to check for problems, using a tiny camera to see inside your knee.
Knee replacement, also called knee arthroplasty or total knee replacement, is a surgical procedure to resurface a knee damaged by arthritis. Metal and plastic parts are used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint, along with the kneecap.
Presence of right artificial knee jointZ96. 651 - Presence of right artificial knee joint | ICD-10-CM.
An important HCPCS code is G0289, Arthroscopy, knee, surgical, for removal of loose body, debridement/shaving of articular cartilage (chondroplasty) at the time of other surgical knee arthroscopy in a different compartment of the same knee. This code is used for Medicare to report the procedure in that description, when performed in a separate compartment of the knee during the same operative session. It is not appropriate to use code 29877 even with a modifier.
“From a CPT® coding perspective, if debridement or shaving of articular cartilage and meniscectomy are performed in the same compartment of the knee, then only code 29881, Arthroscopy, knee, surgical; with meniscectomy (medial or lateral, including any meniscal shaving), should be reported. However, if debridement or shaving of articular cartilage is performed in one compartment of the knee and a meniscectomy is performed in a different compartment of the knee, then codes 29877, Arthroscopy, knee, surgical; debridement/shaving of articular cartilage (chondroplasty), and 29881 should be reported.”

Slippery and flexible, hyaline (articular) cartilage within the knee joint allows, has less friction than two pieces of glass placed together. This allows the joint to move with minimal friction in a healthy knee. There are two primary types of cartilage in the knee:
29880 Arthroscopy medial and lateral meniscectomy G0289 for the Arthroscopic removal of a loose body in a separate compartment 29880 is coded for the medial AND lateral meniscectomy Since the loose body removal was done in a separate compartment (patellofemoral), the G0289 is coded.
