Trigger finger/FDS repair both billable ?

    Default Trigger finger/FDS repair both billable ?
    New Call-to-action
    I need some guidance - some articles say you can bill both 26055 (59)TFR along with flexor digitorum superficialis repair 26350
    The insurance is a medicare advantage - that leads me directly to just 26350, but then maybe I have missed something.
    Here is a part of the note: The patient has severe tendinosis with longitudinal tearing & fraying of the fds both proximal, distal and under the A1pulley. Debrided and repaired.
    History: the patient had a fall -as a result she also had an orif of the distal radius repaired during the same session.

    I am looking at : 26350 - M66.341 and 25609 S52.561A
    opinions please
    Thanks Barb

    Just ran this through 3M and it doesn't hit any edits - I haven't looked directly at the NCCI spreadsheets... but I would code 25609-lt/rt and 26350,51,lt/rt
