    Question Ganglion impar nerve block

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know what code to use for a ganglion impar nerve block? I usually end up using 64999, but wondering if anyone has found something a little more specific.

    I agree, unlisted code 64999 in addition to appropriate radiological guidance code if used.

    Are you referring to stellate ganglion (cervical sympathetic) Nerve? - If so, then I would use 64510 instead of unlisted.
