when billing the new emg codes the for 95885 is for each extremity-it does not mention number of muscles. I have an emg dpne on rt and left upper extremity, the muscles listed are deltoid,biceps (c5,6),triceps(c6-7) br(c5,6),apb(t1,c8) fdio for each. Would this be considered a complete study 95886 when billed with 95900-95904?

Yes, this is a complete study, so you would use 95886 x 2. Here's a link to an article with some good examples:
