TMT Arthrodesis Question.

  1. Default TMT Arthrodesis Question.
    Medical Coding Books
    Doc performs 28730 (Arthrodesis, midtarsal or tarsometatarsal, multiple or transverse) on four TMT joints.

    As I am reading the description, I don't think I can bill for four joints but only once as it lists 'multiple'.

    Any thoughts?
