Hi there,

Can anyone share the guidelines for tendon injection ( 20551 )

1.How many units can be reported in a day ( MUE 5 UNITS ) but one of our physician is billing more than 5 units but the documentation support for more than 5

ex : patient came with complaints of Neck pain, dorsal pain associated with stiffness with headache. Pain is radiating to both upper limbs hence 12 single tendon injection (20551) for both rt and lt trapezii tendons, rt/lt supraspinatus, rt/lt infraspinatus, rt/lt iliocostalis, rt/lt levator scapulae and rt/lt latissmus dorsii tendons guided by US (76942) are done.
