Can we assign 37765 and 37766 per stab?
Codes 37765 and 37766 are not assigned per stab. If 10–20 stab incisions are made in a single extremity, assign 37765 once. If more than 20 stab incisions are made in a single extremity, assign 37766 once. If fewer than 10 stab incisions are made, assign unlisted code 37799 once.
