    Default Facet Injection fourth level Lumbar

    AAPC: Back to School
    For the the new codes for facets, can you bill for a fourth level, or does code 64495 include the fourth level?



    64495 x 2

    64495 includes the third level and any additional levels. You can only bill for three levels in a region in the same session no matter how many are treated.
