Actually, in a recent sinus surgery I had, the surgery got less reimbursement because the insurance said that the other procedures he performed (there were a couple) were secondary to the main procedure so yes, he got more but not as much as if he would have done two separate surgeries. (or something like that if I understand the insurance claim right).
