    Red face E/M w trigger or epidural?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Been awhile since I coded pain management. If memory serves, an E/M can be billed on the first visit w/ a -25. After that, trigger, or epi only, no E/M. Will someone confirm for me? Thanks a bunch!

    I think that is correct unless of course the pt come in with a seperate problem non-related to the trigger point injection and a second dx has to verify the e/m ( the dx and the e/m has to match)

    hope this helps
