Trigger Point Injection

I was told you can't bill both 20552 and 20553 Trigger point. (cervical) inj total of 5.
Would it be billed as 20552 1st (two) and 20553-59 for the last 3??
Thanks

re: Trigger Point Injection

20552 is for one or two muscles.
20553 is for more than three muscles.

If you do a total of 3 to 103 muscles then you report 20553 - ONCE.

You never report 20552 and 20553 together. 20553 is not an add-on code.
