Coding for Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections in the Spine

Coding for Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections in the Spine

May 23, 2019

Question:
We are starting to do platelet-rich plasma injections in the spine.  Would we bill 64483? 

Answer:
No because 64483 is specifically for an “anesthetic agent and/or steroid” injection.  The most accurate code is 0232T (Injection(s), platelet rich plasma, any site, including image guidance, harvesting and preparation when performed).  Be sure to obtain prior authorization as this service is oftentimes not covered.
