    Default pain question

    AAPC: Back to School
    Happy Friday!

    Lt L4L5 lateral neuroforaminal block with steroid injection 64483
    and L4L5 interlaminar epidural steroid injection both w/ fluoroscopy 62311

    Both were at the same level.....

    Mut. Exclusive w/ CCI so would 62311 only be billed w/ 77003 TC? It seems the 64483 would be the greater procedure.

    I would go with whichever procedure was the best documented. If both are documented well, then toss a coin
    Mary, CPC, CANPC, COSC

    I would go with whichever has the higher allowable from the insurance company - probably 64483.
