We have a new pain mgmt doc coming on staff and he's going to be billing more extensive pain mgmt procedures than I'm used to coding for so I was hopings someone might be able to help me out with this one;

I was told prior to performing the destruction by neurolytic agent, paravertebral facet joint, a 'test run' is done to ensure the correct nerve is accessed. Is this correct? And if so, what CPT code is used to bill for this service?  ???

Thanks!

Sorry, but I don't have experience in this specific scenario.  I was hoping another member might have answered.  :(
