    Default Sympathetic Blocks

    AAPC: Back to School
    CPT code 64520: CPT assistant or CPT description leads me to believe that this code may be used to code "per" nerve.

    example: L1 vertebral body was visualized, after needle placement, 5 cc of 1.5% bupivacaine was injected in 1 cc increments to avoid intravscular injection of the local anesthetic. Same procedure was repeated a the L2 level."

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you.
