Thread: Finger manipulation in office

    Default Finger manipulation in office

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need some help with this one. The doctor did a finger manipulation (CPT 26340)(for a locked joint and an osteophyte) with a local block in the office. Medicare is denying this for invalid place of service. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    According to my Ingenix coding companion, that procedure is performed under a
    general anesthesia.
