EMG Guidance with Extremity Chemodenervation

EMG Guidance with Extremity Chemodenervation

October 5, 2017

How many times can code 95874, Needle electromyography for guidance in conjunction with chemodenervation, be reported If chemodenervation is performed on four extremities (e.g., 64642, 64643, 64644, 64645)?

Per CPT, code 95874 is reported for each corresponding chemodenervation of the extremity.  In the example, four chemodenervation codes were reported, therefore, the needle electromyographic (EMG) add-on code 95874 would be reported four times for the scenario described in the question.
