    I have a surgery that I need help researching info on. We billed out a 24341 (repair of elbow tendon) and 64718 (ulnar nerve neuroplasty). Is there anything to look for - if at all - that would allow these 2 procedures to be billed at the same session.

    I have not well versed in nerve surgery. Thanks.

    Chances are you'll have to bill the 24341 alone. I've been told by payers 64718 is incidental, you have to move the nerve to repair the tendon.
