Can we report injection procedure codes such as 93573 and 93574, or 93575 together?
Injection procedures 93563, 93564, 93565, 93566, 93567, 93568, 93569, 93573, 93574, 93575 represent separately identifiable services and may be reported in conjunction with one another, when appropriate. Note that for angiography of noncoronary and non-pulmonary arteries and veins, performed as a distinct service, use appropriate codes from the radiology section and the vascular injection procedures subsection in the surgery/cardiovascular system section.
