    When billing for chemodenervation can we bill the EMG more than once per day. We are receiveing conflicting information.

    Per CPT Assistant Jan 2009

    Excerpt:

    Code 95874 should be reported once per chemodenervation procedure session (i.e.64612 + 95874).

    The same reporting is applicable to 95873. CPT code 95873 is reported once per chemodenervation procedure session (i.e. code 64613 + 95873).

    It is not appropriate to report either code 95873 or 95874 for each area injected or multiple times for each injection performed.
