    Provider is injecting a steroid in to the sacroiliac joint. No imaging so cannot code with 27096. Can anyone help me with a procedure code? My provider is trying to use 20610, I disagree.

    20610 seems correct to me. Why do you disagree?

    I agree with Walker22...CPT Assistant also suggests this code (20610) in the absence of imaging.

    If he truely is injecting the joint and not the muscle around the SI joint I would agree to use the 20610 also. If he is injecting muscle I would use the trigger point injection of 20552. Good Luck
