NEW Epidural Injection Codes for 2017

New epidural injection codes have been established for 2017 with the primary difference being that one code will state “without imaging guidance” and the second code will read “with imaging guidance” – so you will no longer be able to report the injection and fluoroscopy separately.

62310 will be changed to:

  • 62320 – Injection(s), diagnostic or therapeutic substances(s) (eg, anesthetic, antispasmodic, opioid, steroid, other solution), not including neurolytic substances, including needle placement, interlaminar epidural, subarachnoid, cervical or thoracic; without imaging guidance
  • 62321 – with imaging guidance (ie, fluoroscopy or CT)

62311 will be changed to:

  • 62322 – Injection(s), diagnostic or therapeutic substances(s) (eg, anesthetic, antispasmodic, opioid, steroid, other solution), not including neurolytic substances, including needle placement, interlaminar epidural, subarachnoid, lumbar or sacral (caudal); without imaging guidance
  • 62323 – with imaging guidance (ie, fluoroscopy or CT)

62318 will be change to:

  • 62324 – Injection(s), including indwelling catheter placement, continuous infusion or intermittent bolus, of diagnostic or therapeutic substance(s) (eg, anesthetic, antispasmodic, opioid, steroid, other solution), not including neurolytic substances, interlaminer epidural or subarcachnoid, cervical or thoracic, without imaging guidance
  • 62325 – with imaging guidance (ie, fluoroscopy or CT)

62319 will be changed to:

  • 62326 – Injection(s), including indwelling catheter placement, continuous infusion or intermittent bolus, of diagnostic or therapeutic substance(s) (eg, anesthetic, antispasmodic, opioid, steroid, other solution), not including neurolytic substances, interlaminer epidural or subarcachnoid, lumbar or sacral (caudal); without imaging guidance
  • 62327 – with imaging guidance (ie, fluoroscopy or CT)
