    Default 27690

    I have a case where the Dr wants to use 27690 and 27690-59 to report a peroneus longus to brevis transfer AND tibalis anterior tendon transfer to the cuboid.

    Would the add-on code 27692 be more appropriate or is the fact that it was 2 separate tendons allow a 59 mod? It's a little confusing. Thanks

    Default 27692 is the appropriate code
    27692 should be used in this instance, as CPT guidelines state to use this in conjunction with 27690. Per the code descriptor, 27690 is for a single tendon and 27692 is for each additional tendon.

    Thank you. That's what I was thinking but it's nice to get a second opinion.
