Ulnar Nerve

Sandra Posted Thu 20th of April, 2017 09:54:52 AM
What CPT code would you use for excision of mass and decompression of ulnar nerve, left arm? Would CPT code 64718 be accurate?

Use CPT code 64718 for release of ulnar nerve decompression at elbow region. If the ulnar nerve decompression release was performed at wrist region, the appropriate CPT code would be 64719. Append modifier LT with the CPT code for the procedure performed on left limb.
