    Question Piriformis Injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    I was just curious as to what CPT codes are used when you code a Piriformis Injection. I was taught to code it as a "trigger point" injection (20552), but when I put through our Encoder system (3M), it doesn't seem to like this code. Can you tell me what you use for CPT codes in this situation?

    We use 20552 at my pain practice and have never had a problem...
