Thread: Small finger MP steroid injection

    Default Small finger MP steroid injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have an op report that states Rt basal joint arthroplasty with flexor carpi radialis tendon transfer, carpal tunnel release and small finger MP steroid injection. I have coded the arthroplasty w/tendon transfer w/25447 and 25310-51. The doctor specified one incision for the arthroplasty and one incision for the transfer, no separate incision for the carpal tunnel release. So I am not coding the carpal tunnel release. Also, can I code the steroid injection?

    Default Question

    Did you ever find answer to this?
    I have to bill cpt 25447, 25310-51, 64721 and cannot bill for steroid injection if being used for post operative pain management, just wanted to compare to what you got.
