The ACL is inside the knee. The MCL is on the outside of the joint capsule. For this reason I think you should appeal. If the MCL repair was performed open it would probably be billed 27427 unless it was torn off the knee, then 27405. So look at the documentation and maybe use one of these as a comparison. For appealing I would state that they are separate due to one being inside the knee and the other not.
