Medicare is not allowing the reimbursement of multiple cpt 26449 that were performed on each finger (F5, F6, F7, F8, F9). They are stating each line is bundled into cpt 25116, that dr also billed for surgery. We have rebilled with a '51' modifier and also a '76' modifier on each 26449 line. What are we not adding to show each line was done and that the dr should be reimbursed?

Each line of 26449 should be billed with modifier 59. Feel free to ask for any further query.
