Hello, here's an excerpt from CPT Assistant, Nov. 2013

Question: Is code 11900, Injection, intralesional; up to and including 7 lesions, or the unlisted code 64999 the appropriate code to report for injections of neuromas?

Answer: Neither code is appropriate to report for injections of neuromas. A “neuroma” is a thickening of scar tissue on the nerve and/or lining of the nerve; therefore, the appropriate nerve injection code should be reported based on the nerve injected.
