Greetings from SuperCoder.com!

 

You should report CPT code 64640 for treatment of peripheral nerves. Report fluoroscopic guidance separately. Each peripheral nerve root block is reported as destruction of a peripheral nerve. So it is appropriate to report 64640 multiple times with use of Modifier 59 (or X{EPSU}).

 

Please feel free to write if you have any concern or questions.

 

Thanks.
