    26615 states each bone so I would say 5 times for each hand; total = 10.

    You may bill with 1 unit only per metacarpal bone . You use the appropriate finger modifieron each line item for instance every finger on the left hand would be
    26615 FA
    26615 F1
    26615 F2
    26615 F3
    26615 F4
