Pain Management "Leads"

    I have a claim for "16 units" for HCPCS "L8680-Implantable neurostimulator electrode, each

    There is a Lead that has 8 electrodes, if the provider placed 2 of these electrodes it will make "16 leads"... Is this how it's coded L8680 16 units? Or is it L8680 2 units?

    Thanks
