Knee Pain Injection

Knee Pain Injection

March 1, 2018

My physician injects the superior medial and lateral branches of the genicular nerve for knee pain and wants to report 64450 and 64450-59.  Is this correct?

No.  Even though more than one injection may be required during the session, the code 64450 is reported once per its description “peripheral nerve or branch”.

*This response is based on the best information available as of 03/01/18.
