Question:
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?

Answer:
According to the AMA CPT Knowledge Base, the correct CPT code for a tarsal tunnel injection is 28899.
