Botox Injection in the Hand

Botox Injection in the Hand

March 14, 2019

Question:
I am trying to find a CPT code for a Botox injection in the right hand, and found CPT code 64653.  Is this the code I should report?

Answer:
There is not a specific CPT code for a Botox injection (chemodenervation) of the hands.  You should report the unlisted code CPT 64999 when performing the injection(s) on the hands and/or feet. Do forget to use a J code to report the Botox injected.
