Thread: What CPT- injection steroid Carpal Tunnel?

  1. #1

    Post What CPT- injection steroid Carpal Tunnel?

    What CPT code is correct for injection of steroid into Carpal Tunnel?
    Our physicians tend to use 20550? But then you cannot use 354.0 because it is not medically necessary per Medicare guidelines.
    I think it is more appropriate to use 20526, then you can use 354.0.
    Wanted to know what others are using? Thaks for your help.
