    Please help...
    Dr A was on a case and he did a spinal epidural on a patient. Dr A left and Dr B finished the case. But when Dr B came in the spinal was not working anymore. So Dr B had to re-do (reinsert and restart) the spinal for the patient. Dr B wants to know how to bill for that or if he can bill for that at all. Thank you!

    Hi,
    As Dr. B reinserted the needle for spinal epidural injection, he/she may bill for this service.
    Spinal epidural injection without employment of catheter -
    62310-cervical or thoracic
    62311-lumbar
    Spinal epidural injection with catheter employed -
    62318-cervical or thoracic
    62319-lumbar
