    Doctor did a right suboccipital nerve root block injection for suboccipital pain. Anyone have suggestions for the procedure code?

    I use 64405, use RT and LT mods and if both sides are done use mod 50.
    I don't have access to your procedure report however.

    The op report reads "inject a total of 15cc of 0.5% Lidocaine without epinephrine between the right mastoid process and the right suboccipital protuberance."
