botox injection in the trapezius

K Posted Mon 02nd of May, 2016 14:15:36 PM
Hello, We have a provider that would like to perform a Botox injection, and the patient has Medicare. DX G24.8 applies to this patient (other dystonia)and the provider has requested that we schedule "Botox - trapezius TPI”. Is it possible to bill and be reimbursed…. I think CPT code that we would use is 64616. What is supercoder opinion?

Yes, you can bill for CPT code 64616 for dystonia. You need to make sure the medical necessity of the procedure. Please find below the link for better understanding on chemodenervation. http://www.mediquant.com/policy/L31701_20150101.pdf
