    CPT code 54150 includes regional dorsal penile or ring block. It is my impression that the only code you would need to report is the 54150.

    Question Clarification

    Has anyone been succesful in getting reimbursed with either method??? We have been using 54150 and 00920-51 and it seems as though sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Is there a correct standard for this?
