    Question Help/ 64483 & 64484
    Exam Training Packages
    Doctor performed Right and Left transforaminal epidural injection at L5 level. Can this be billed as 64483 and 64484 or is this consider 1 level? Again this is a bilateral procedure
    at L5.

    The correct way to report this is 64483-50. When it says "each additional level" in the descriptor for 64484, you would want to only want to use the add on code if a separate level was performed. There is a article from MLN Matters on the 50

    You would also want to follow this concept with Facet Injections this was an issue in the past and was brought in this report.

    single level use RT LT or 50
    For each additional level use the add on code with the appropriate modifier
