re: coding of 64450

we can bill it for per nerve injected as desription of the code says nerve block other peripheral nerve or branch so it is a blcok to nerves and does not describe any treatment done to the nerves so it is billed as nerve injected

It is true that this code has an MUE of 10, which means you can only bill this to Medicare with a maximum of 10 units (10 different nerves/branches). After that, Medicare will not pay.
