Hi Friends,:)

Please help me with this :confused:

Our neurologist performs Chemodenervation of muscles of facial nerve, neck muscle, & muscles of extremity .
We have got the CPT codes for same
64612 - Chemodenervation of muscle(s); muscle(s) innervated by facial nerve
64613 - Chemodenervation of muscle(s); neck muscle
64614 - Chemodenervation of muscle(s); extremity

Which modifier should we use to code all these services on same day ?
59 or 51 ? & For which procedure ?

64614
64612 -51
64613-51

I've ranked them based on RVU order. Since CCI edits do not have bundling edits against these codes, I would select modifier 51.
