Wedge resection with pulmonary decortication and pleurodesis

Date: Apr 30, 2021

Question:

My physician did a partial pulmonary decortication and wedge resection of mass as well as a pleurodesis. The codes are 32651, 32650, 32666. Can these be billed together, or am I supposed to only code the one with the highest RVUs?
