Thread: dx facet synovial cyst

    Default dx facet synovial cyst

    AAPC: Back to School
    For lumbar facet synovial cyst would there be any reason why I could not code using 721.3 or should I be looking at 727.00 as the correct code? I am having trouble getting paid using the 727.00 code for 64493 facet injection.

    Thank you lvtrovato
