I am writing on behalf of myself and my other Orthopedic coding colleagues regarding tarsal tunnel injections. We have done some research on this and cannot find a concrete answer on what CPT code to use for the injection. Are we to be using 64450 or 28899?
According to the AMA CPT Knowledge Base, the correct CPT code for a tarsal tunnel injection is 28899.
