    Medical Coding Books
    Bilateral t8-t10 facet (zygapophyseal joint) injections.

    Would the correct way to bill this be:
    64470-50 qty 2
    64472-50 qty 2
    64472-50 qty 2
    77003 (no modifier) qty 1 (we own the machine and pay the tech)

    Haven't done pain coding in a while...just want to make sure I'm doing this right.

    Thanks!

    T8-T9,T9-T10=64470-50 and 64472-50. The majority of carriers only want 1 unit.

    The physician is injecting three nerves but only two levels.
