    I've billed for pain management for fifteen years but haven't seen this in a while. Go with the 77002. The reimbursement is a smidge better and the better describes the procedure. 77003 is mainly used for epidurals, facets, RF etc. The CPT spells out this out for 77003 in detail.

    77003 is for Spinal injections. That is why they are only billed with facets, etc.
