piriformis injection with Botox

K Posted Tue 12th of April, 2016 11:49:44 AM
Hello, My provider did a piriformis injection with 200 units of botox. Would the correct code be the 64646?

Hi Katerina, As per documentation the CPT code 64642 will be the better option to use for the Botox injection in piriformis, However, if the Botox is used for cosmetic purpose, some of the insurance companies do not reimburse for it, so you need to check with payer for the same. For further assistance or clarification, please send some more details of your report. Thank you.
