  1. #1

    Smile Interspinal ligament level?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Pain mgmt practice; MD did injection at T3-T4. Trying to determine is this is considered 1 level or not.

    Any light on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

    For 20550 Injection(s); single tendon sheath, or ligament, aponeurosis (eg, plantar "fascia")

    It states Injection(s) as in the plural form for representing a single or multple injections at a single ligament.

    I would query the physician or review the procedure note to see if at this level was a single ligament injected once or multple times

    Or was two separate ligaments injected with separate injections
