These are both same injections represented by codes
The paravertebral facet injection codes 64490-64495 represent unilateral procedures reported once for injection(s) at a specific level regardless of the number of needle(s) inserted or number of drug(s) injected at that level. Modifier 50, Bilateral Procedure,would be appended to those levels where a bilateral injection was done.
