Thread: Epidural Steroid Facet Injection??

    Default Epidural Steroid Facet Injection??

    AAPC: Back to School
    Doc states he performed an "epidural steroid facet injection on L4-L5." He also uses fluoroscopic guidance. I'm new to this and confused as to code which of the following: 64483, 64493, 62311

    62311 for the lumbar epidural injection and 77003-TC for the fluoroscopy.

    -TC modifier is for the facility. -26 is professional services. Does the provider own the equipment? That will make a difference on which modifier to use.

    We use 64493 for the "facet" injections which includes the fluoroscopy for single level lumbar. If done bilaterally, modifier 50 is attached as well.
