Physician performed closed reduction of both distal radius and distal ulna fracture. He also did percutatneous pinning on the distal radius-which would be 25606. It appears that this is the only code I can bill for both reductions. I looked into code 25650 for the distal ulna but per CCI edits it is included in the 25606. I would appreciate some verification that the only code I can bill for reduction of both with percutaneous pinning of distal radius is in fact 25606. I'm just nervous that nowhere within the 25606 is the distal ulna mention-I feel like I'm cheating my physician.
