Doctor did a right suboccipital nerve root block injection for suboccipital pain. Anyone have suggestions for the procedure code?
Thanks.

Occipital Nerve blocks

I use 64405, use RT and LT mods and if both sides are done use mod 50.
I don't have access to your procedure report however.

The op report reads "inject a total of 15cc of 0.5% Lidocaine without epinephrine between the right mastoid process and the right suboccipital protuberance."
