ultrasound guided needle placement

Maggie Posted Sun 08th of September, 2013 23:01:10 PM

How should I bill for ultra sound guided needle placement for Lumber facet joint at three levels.

The last sentence in the 1st paragraph of the narrative just above 64490 in the CPT book tells all. "If ultrasound guidance is used, report 0213T-0218T"

For lumbar:

0216T for the first level,

+0217T for the 2nd level and

+0218T for the 3rd level.

Thank you.
