  2. Default 77003 with injection
    Hi All

    If you bill multiple levels of injection ex. 64470 at C4-5 then 64472 at C5-6,and C6-7, can you only bill 77003 once, or for each level.

    Thank you for any help.

    "When reporting code 77003, it is important to recognize that it should be reported once per spinal region."

    yes, 77003 should only be billed once, there is an article in the coding edge mag back from march 2008 that talks about the spinal injections and the guidance. it states the guidance can only be used once per region regardless the number of injections in the Specific region.

    “…CPT code 77003 is intended to be reported per spinal region (not per level)”
