Thread: Help: Coding lumbar epidural steroid inj for w/c

    Question Help: Coding lumbar epidural steroid inj for w/c

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am finding the codes for PPO, but I am not finding anything for the Lumbar Translaminar epidural steroid injection. What I have right now is 62289 or should I code it "unspecified" with the 64999 code (which I was advised to do)?

    HELLLLLPPP! Thanks soooo much in advance!

    without actually seeing the report, I would say to look at 64483 this is for a transforaminal epidual w/ image guidane lumbar or sacral single level or you could look at 62311 which is an epidual steroid inj. lumbar,sacral this one you would use the 77003 for flouro guidance as well. Hope this helps

    The correct code is 62311 w/77003 for the fluroscopic guidance. CPT code 64483 is for transforaminal injections, two different "angles".
