    Default 72275 77003 with transforaminal lumbar epidurals

    AAPC: Back to School
    if the transforaminal lumbar epidural is done with the 72275 and the 77003 in L3-L4, L4-L5, L5-S1, can I report the 72275 and the 77003 for each level or just once for all three levels?

    According to CPT 72275 includes 77003.
    And I think you can only bill 72275 one time no matter how many levels.
