    Default 28086 Question.

    AAPC: Back to School
    As this does not state 'each', can I bill this for two tendons with a -59 on the second or just once?

    Insurance company is stating second being 'incidental'.

    I think that because this code describes the tendon "sheath", I would only use it once.
