Chest wall injection

Mike Posted Mon 08th of June, 2015 11:09:33 AM

Doctor want to do a local injection of Ketemine 25 mg to the right chest wall for a neuroma, do to the pain from the neuroma pressing against the chest wall. She thinks code 96372? Would this be correct? Also what would be the J code for the Ketemine 25 mg? -

You gave me an answer to this question a couple days ago. But now the doctor wants to use Botox. Would the CPT code be the same for the chest wall injection?

There is all set of different codes for Botox injections. Different CPT codes like 64612, 64616, and 64642-64647 are used depending on the location. You can use CPT code 64646 for Chemodenervation of trunk muscles; 1-5 muscles.
The main aim of the procedure is to relieve pain and spasms. This procedure is performed on trunk muscles using chemodenervation. Chemodenervation is an injection, often botox, to relieve patients pain and spasms.
