Thread: Botox injection

    Question Botox injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need some advise on coding a procedure. My doctor had done a Rectal examination under anesthesia with intrasphincteri injection of Botox. How should I code this? Should I just code it as a Anorectal exam requiring anesthesia (45990) and add a 22 modifier to cover the botox injection or should I use unlisted (45999) for the whole procedure? No scope was used on this procedure.
