Report 64450 for Lateral Pectoral Nerve Block

Question: What is the correct procedure code for a lateral pectoral nerve block?

New Hampshire Subscriber

Answer: CPT® does not include a specific code for administration of a lateral pectoral nerve block. Your best option is to report 64450 (Injection, anesthetic agent; other peripheral nerve or branch). Include documentation from your provider that explains where he administered the injection.
