Hi,

My doc did a tendon repair 26356 and applied splinting 29125 the same day. I know that there is a note that splinting, unless replacement, is not allowed same day as restorative treatment, however when checking CCI 26356 and 29125 (splinting) can be billed together.
Does the rule on splinting apply to tendon repair as well or only fracture treatment?

Thank you,
Autumn
