0490 64450

Per NCCI, CPT 77002 is a column two code to column one code 64450. Modifier 59 would not be appropriate due to the fact the image guidance was utlized to perform the block and it is considered bundled.

Regardless, if they are bundled, 77002 would be a packaged service; no separate payment.

For carriers that would accept 77002 as separately reimburseable with 64450, the revenue code for 77002 would be 320

77003 would be reserve for procedures involving the spine such as 62310-62319
