Can anyone tell me the correct way to code for the amputation of two toes on the same foot at the same setting? Should I list 28820 out twice with discriptor of "2nd digit" on one and "3rd digit" on the other, and perhaps,with a modifer 51 or 52? Or, should I use the cpt code once, with 2 units?

Thanks for any help,
Alisa

I would go with 28820 twice, with appropriate HCPCS modifiers for each code:

T1 Left foot, second digit
T2 Left foot, third digit
T3 Left foot, fourth digit
T4 Left foot, fifth digit
T5 Right foot, great toe
T6 Right foot, second digit
T7 Right foot, third digit
T8 Right foot, fourth digit
T9 Right foot, fifth digit
TA Left foot, great

:cool:

Thank you for your thoughts! That's the way I was leaning but then started second guessing myself.
