RFTC Coding

Lindye Posted Wed 13th of August, 2014 17:46:22 PM

My doctor has that he performed an Rf at L5-S1 and sacral accessory. I know that L5-S1 would be codeed as 64635 but would I add 64636 for sacral accessory, or would that be included in the L5-S1?
Thanks

Thanks for your query.

For radio frequency thermal coagulation of sacral accessory nerve, you should use code 64640, Destruction by neurolytic agent; other peripheral nerve or branch.

Thanks !!
