Hardware Block

Question:

Thank you for coming to our practice to provide on-site coding education for our neurosurgeons and pain management physicians – the course was fantastic and your handout is now my “Bible”!

I forgot to ask you a question: One of our pain management doctors is doing a procedure called a hardware block and I can’t seem to find the CPT code for this. Can you please help?

Answer:

Thank you for your kind words! There is no CPT code for a hardware block; therefore, we have to use an unlisted code (e.g., 64999).
