There is not. However, some of the Medicare Contractors specify that they want it billed as 64450. If billing Medicare, please read over your LCD carefully.

updated LCD (removed 28899/64450)

Does anyone know if there is a better code to use for tarsal tunnel injections besides 28899?

28899 is NO longer used for TT inj.
Please find the updated LCD (CMS) for Injections - Tendon, Ligament, Ganglion Cyst, Tunnel Syndromes and Morton's Neuroma;
LAST updated on 11/21/2010

Instructions to use CPT code 28899 was removed
Added a statement instructing providers to use CPT Code 64450 for Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome therapy.

Thanks
