    Default insertion of pain pump catheter

    Is there a code that I can use for this?
    Maybe 62350?

    62350 is a spine code. The code you are looking for is 37202 BUT it is incidental to your procedures. Check edits.

    Thank you! I did check out that code as well and the edits. He's not getting the code. He'd like to, but isn't going to happen.
