    Would anyone out there know the CPT code for coccyx injection. Perhaps 27096???

    Thanks for any assistance!

    Since the coccyx is actually related to the sacrum/caudal area..I would use the caudal codes.

    I was given by my Dr. 62282 which is Epi, lumbar, sacral (caudal).

    Hope this helps

    The 62282 should only be used if a neuolytic substance is injected. Typically the coccyx injections are of steroid nature so I would lean towards those codes (62311)
