MEDIAL BRANCH BLOCK/FACET INJECTION

Peter Posted Wed 15th of May, 2013 15:02:34 PM

CAN WE BILL ON THE SAME DAY FOR THE BOTH A MEDICAL BRANCH BLOCK AND A FACET INJECITON???

SuperCoder Answered Wed 15th of May, 2013 21:04:51 PM

These are both same injections represented by codes

64490-64495

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.
