Question:  

What is the code for injection of Botox the parotid for hyperhidrosis or to control excessive oral secretions?

Answer:

The code you are looking for is 64611 (Chemodenervation of parotid and submandibular salivary glands, bilateral). The code assumes you are doing at least four injections: right parotid, right submandibular, left parotid and left submandibular). Report 64611-52 (reduced services modifier) if you do less than four injections.
