Does anyone know why the Initial Trigger point injection pays more than the multiple code? Why Just one pays more than if multiple are done? :confused:

What payer are you asking about? NGS for CT pays $60.48 for code 20552 and $70.22 for 20553, so the multiple pays more. If you have a problem with payment from a specific payer, you may want to check your contract. 20553 has higher RVUs than 20552, but sometimes prices for specific codes are specially negotiated.
