    Physician preformed 64622 L3/4,L4/5 and L5/S1 bilateral. How would you bill?

    I THINK AS FOLLOWING:

    64622-50
    64623-50
    64623-50
    Thank you

    When performing nerve destructions, you count the actual number of nerves the physician injects. One level = one nerve.

    L3-64622
    L4-64623
    L5-64623
    S1-64623

    64622-50
    64623 x 3-50 (or RT/LT...depending on carrier)

    (I'm assuming that all levels were performed bilaterally)

    When billing this type of procedure would you also use 51 and 59 modifiers?
