    When billing 64450 bilateral do you bill the code 64450-50 qty 1 or do you bill 64450-50 qty 4 on your units

    when 64450 is bilateral procedure (e.g. injection on the Lt and RT of the legs), you will bill 64450 - 50 with 1 unit. Remember to increase the price as insurance co e.g. Medicare will pay 150% of their fee schedule.
