    Hi,
    Does anyone know if 26775 is the correct code for a finger dislocation reduction with a digital block?? Where can I find documentation to support this?
    Thanks

    If the patient is taken to the OR 26775 is appropriate. If your doc is doing the procedure in the office with providing his/her own block, 26770 is appropriate. See the surgery guidelines on page 47 of CPT Professional.
