Question:
What procedure code should be used for Sacroiliac Joint injections?
Answer:

Procedure code 27096 is to be used only with imaging confirmation of intra-articular needle positioning.  If the muscles surrounding the sacroiliac joint are injected in lieu of the joint, then a trigger point injection should be reported and not a sacroiliac joint injection. It is not appropriate to use CPT code 20610-20611 Arthrocentesis for SI joint injections.  

Procedure code 27096 represents a unilateral procedure, for bilateral use appropriate modifier. What is the modifier? Ask WCH!
