Facet joint injection

Eunice Posted Fri 28th of September, 2012 15:30:47 PM

If facet joint injection was done using fluoroscopy guidance then can we bill cpt 64490-64495 along with 77003?

Thank you!

No, 77003 is now a part of the code sets 64490-64495

New 2011 guidelines direct you to submit 64490 (Injection[s], diagnostic or therapeutic agent, paravertebral facet [zygapophyseal] joint [for nerves innervating that joint] with image guidance [fluoroscopy or CT], cervical or thoracic; single level) instead.
