Patient had a closed reduction with manipulation and percutaneous K-wire fixation of left ring finger proximal phalanx intraarticular head fracture. Provider is saying to use CPT 26548 which I totally disagree with but am going back and forth with how to code this one.
26742 with 26776
26742 alone
26608 alone (I don't like this either but this was suggested by another coder)
or something completely different?

Opinions please

I've coded this many times: CPT 26727: Percutaneous skeletal fixation of unstable phalangeal shaft fracture, proximal or middle phalanx, finger or thumb, with manipulation, each

Thank you for your reply! I saw that code and was hesitant because it doesn't mention anything about the intraarticular, but it is most closely resembling all of the work that was completed and not having to use an unspecified code.
