    Smile Occipital atlanto & anlantoaxial injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone ever coded this injection?
    The dr's report says "left occipital atlanto and atlantoaxial cervical facet joint injection". Therefore, would this be coded as cervical facet joint injection & 2 levels.. Any ideas/ input would be great. Thanks.
