    Default steroid lumbar spine injection- please help with coding
    Medical Coding Books

    Can you please help code this out? I am not finding any appropriate codes. here's the procedure:

    We performed this at the left L5 and S1 transforaminal level under fluoroscopic guidance under moderate conscious sedation with monitoring for anxiety purposes

    Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

    Look at code 62311 for a epidural steroid injection or 64483 for transforaminal epidural steroid injection. Hope this helps.

    Thank you

    That is the code I was going with. As well as a code for the fluoro and the sedation but the note does not specify minutes of sedation will have to query provider on that one.

    flouro is bundled with 64483 so it is not billable seoparately
