64702, 64704, perhaps? (With either F3 or F8 modifier, depending on RT or LT hand)

That's a guess on my part...there's a good chance I'm wrong. :eek:

if in the finger it is 64702 only once because the description says " digital,one or both, same digit"

That's what I had thought as far as the 2 finger nerves, but what about the web spacing? Wouldn't that be considered part of the hand?

We billed 64702 x3 with finger modifiers. Was this wrong??

No that looks right - I looked at the diagrams on Wikipedia and saw that the digital nerves branch out right before they reach the web spacing, so disregard my ignorance! Just curious, but what modifier did you put for the common nerve, since it's not exactly one specific finger?

I don't think I appended a modifier for the common nerve. I don't remember.
