Thread: Heel Injection

    Default Heel Injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone tell me the appropritae code to use for injection of the heel. The selection of codes in the CPT book are 20600, 20605 and 20610, which does not include heel in the description. Does anyone has any input on the usage of these codes are any other available code(S)? Thanks!

    I would probably code 20550

    This link addresses your scenerio...It's listed in "scenerio 2"
