Hi all,
Any help with this question would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
If an interventionalist does a lumbar median nerve block on L5 how would that be coded??
Should it be 64475x1 unit-64476x1 unit or
64475x1 unit- 64476x2 units?
My confusion comes with the fact that he is actually doing 3 injections for the 3 nerves, however it affects 2 levels of the spine. The CPT definition is no help.
What's the general concensus?

Cut and paste -OR- type

Andie,
The best way to post op report is to cut and paste ... then edit out identifying info.
If you can't do that, then just type in (I know, it's a real hassle) the procedure part of the op note.
