Dr. Z's Pain Management Coding Reference 2020 - Find-A-Code Library
Dr. Z’s Pain Management Coding Reference, written by Ruth Broek and Dr. Z, is a comprehensive manual that details the appropriate coding and/or charging for the many different types of pain procedures performed in a variety of settings. It discusses injection procedures to treat spasticity and other conditions that require injections of steroids, anesthetics, neurolytics, and chemodenervation agents. There are specific chapters covering injection procedures, neurolysis and chemodenervation, pain pump implantation and management, and neurostimulator implantation and management. There is also a section on anatomy to aid in determining the type of nerve involved so the appropriate code can be reported. It is laid out in a similar format to the other ZHealth reference manuals.
Procedures are grouped by procedure type (e.g., nerve blocks, neurolysis, neurostimulators) and by anatomical area for convenience of use. This manual combines guidelines from multiple sources into one easy-to-use reference, including: the American Medical Association, the American College of Radiology, the American Hospital Association, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Society of Nuclear Medicine, and other reputable medical societies.
