    Default Hip Arthrogram Injection Code

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a patient has an arthrogram 73525 with local anesthesia, what is the correct injection code - 27093 or 27095? Thanks

    the descriptor for 27095 reads "with anesthesia" so that seems to be the one?

    Use 27093. Local infiltration is always included.

    The "with anesthesia" codes indicate that the work involved in performing the procedures requires anesthesia, whether it is general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, or monitored anesthesia care.
