I have a provider who did RFAs of the Left L4, L5, S1, S2, S3 & SA He billed a 64622 x 1 and 64623 x 4. Another provider states this is incorrect that he should be billing a 64640.Medicare LCD states CPT code 64640 is for Destruction by neurolytic agent;interdigital nerve of the foot-Morton's Neuroma. I am new to Pain Management and I am trying to understand as much as I can Please help. Thanks

CPT 64640 is for destruction of specific site(s) in the nerve root (peripheral nerves or branches). Whereas, 64622 and 64623 is used for destruction of the intercostal nerve. So I think you can only code 64622 x1 and 64623 x4, but do confirm the actual destruction region and code accordingly.
