    Default Please help w/hand sx

    AAPC: Back to School
    Tenolysis of flexor digitorum profundus and superficialis right ring finger ..

    I am thinking this should be 26445 twice ( ?? )
    But even IF that is right - do I use a 59 modifier ? or only the f8 modifier ...

    Im really confused on this one !

    Also the dx code for Flexon tendon adhesions would be 727.89?

    Please offer your expert expertise ! Thanks

    make sure your documentation fully supports two tendons, then you would use the 26445 twice, you will need to append the -59.

    727.89 looks good.
