    Question Steroid Injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    If my provider documents: steroid injection for occipital neuritis/neuralgia (NOT an injection into the joint) what procedure code should I use?

    It is very possible that it could be 64405 but you should confirm with your physician that the injection was in (at) the nerve.
