Thread: Discogram 72295 each level

    Default Discogram 72295 each level

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is it appropriate and acceptable to code mutiple 72295 discogram? If so are you adding a modifier to each level coded and are you reimbursed for all levels. For example we bill for 3 levels use the injeciton code 62290 and the 72295 times 3.
    Thank you,

    You can code each code per level. S&I and procedure codes for these studies typically have a 1:1 correlation. (per 2011 Interventional Radiology Coder) I would code:
    62290 x3
    72295 x3
