    Did you use the T modifiers? T6, T7, T8, T9 for the toes you mentioned. A separate line item for each toe, as you can append only one toe modifier per line item.

    I did put those in but the encoder went nuts with errors. we have a quantim encoder and it is often inaccurate. SO with that said I'll go ahead and code as you mention and ignore the encoder.

    Thanks so much!
