The surgeon performed manipulation of 12 joints in 4 fingers in the right hand under general anesthesia. What's the correct way of billing this many units of CPT 26340 (3 joints per each finger).

Thanks for your query,
Correct way to code this scenario:
26340-F6, 26340-XS-F6 x 2
26340-F7, 26340-XS-F7 x 2
26340-F8, 26340-XS-F8 x 2
26340-F9, 26340-XS-F9 x 2
Make sure to attach operative report with the claim form to justify the procedure and to eliminate the risk of reduction in dollar value.
