Hi everyone...need some opinions,
Patient had some post-op pain block performed by anesthesiologist. Patient had continuous infusion of axillary and I am questioning the appropriate code assignment for this case. I know that CPT 64417 is for single injection into the axillary, however for continuous infusion would this fall under CPT 64416 since the axillary is an extension of the brachial plexus or would there be a more appropriate CPT code?
