Good Morning,

I need some help finding a code for a radial median nerve block for post op pain.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
Edwina Vandemark

Yes, if you are billing it on the same date of service as the main procedure, you need a 59 modifier to indicate that it is a separate service. We also code 338.18, other acute postoperative pain, as primary for the post-op pain block.
