Reader Question:
Code 62263 Covers a Series of Injections

Question: My physician performed an epidural lysis and administered three injections over the course of three days. It looks like CPT® 62263 is the correct code for the percutaneous epidural adhesion. I am just not sure if I can code for the epidural injection via indwelling catheter the following two days. What's your advice?

Answer: The correct approach is to report 62263 (Percutaneous lysis of epidural adhesions using solution injection [e.g., hypertonic saline, enzyme] or mechanical means [e.g., catheter] including radiologic localization [includes contrast when administered], multiple adhesiolysis sessions; 2 or more days) would reported one time for "entire series of injections involving "two injections in the epidural space.
