Is pain management CPT coding just plain ol’ pain? Let us help make it a little less painful. This webinar addresses codes commonly used for the treatment of pain including nerve blocks, epidurals, radiofrequency ablation, and chemodenervation. We will also walk through an in-depth review of spinal anatomy to make understanding code descriptions a little less unnerving.
- Break down coding guidelines for Facet joint injections and radiofrequency ablation procedures
- Differentiate transforaminal epidural injections from other epidural injections
- Identify the codes for chemodenervation based on documentation
- Discuss bundled imaging and medical necessity applicable to these codes
