    Question Use of Botox for Myofascial pain
    Medical Coding Books
    Our provider is doing 3 muscle injections using botox(as the injectable substance) for the treatment of myofascial pain. What CPT code should we be using? We are going back and forth between 64612 - 64614 and the 20552/20553 codes.

    Thanks!

    The 64612-14 codes are the correct ones for Botox and Myobloc.

    Ok. . . On the procedure note it is noted that this patient has multiple trigger points and these trigger points are being injected with botox. Would you still use codes 64612-14?
