Thread: Code 64450

  1. #1

    Default Code 64450

    Our physician wants to bill multiple units of CPT code 64450, as he is injecting one nerve/branch several times on a patient. I don't know much more than that, as the patient hasn't been seen yet today in the office. Last I knew, we couldn't bill multiple units of this code, (I have this written in my notes for some reason!) but I'm wondering if anything has changed??

    Thanks!

    Default 64450

    This code is per branch, I don't think multiples are allowed.

    I agree that CPT 64450 should NOT be reported more than once for multiple injections of ONE nerve nerve/branch.
