If a joint injection is done in the OR (major - 20610) would the anesthesia code be 01991 or 01380? My team is having a debate on how to report since 01991 states injection - however some indicate that it states 'nerve' while the other is specific to the joint site. Since both have a weight of 3 - what are your thoughts????
