    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello coding world,

    We have received several denials for post-op block codes from various payers. Does anyone know if any changes have been made pertaining to the nerve block codes. Please let me know. Thanks!

    What do the denials reason codes state? 59 modifier on the block? Dx such as 338.18 being used?
