    Default scapulothoracic bursa injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient had a c5-6, c6-7( left ) intraarticular facet joint injections with also a left scapulothoracic bursa injection. Is the bursa coode included in with the facet joint injections, if not, would code 20610 be appropriate?thanks

    I would think that you can code the scapulothoracic injection separately with 20610.
