trigger point injection

provider gave 2 trigger point injections - 20552 (single/multiple inj, 1-2 muscles)

does this code cover both injections (I'm assuming it does) - then do we just double the dose on the medication codes? does the 20552 need a modifier since the code is for single or multiple injections in 1-2 muscles?

re: trigger point injection

You code the drug based on how much of the drug was injected.

20552 is correct for injections into one or two muscles. It doesn't matter how many injections were given. You could 5000 injections into one muscle and it would still be 20552.
