Good Afternoon All -

I have a CRNA who provides MAC anesthesia for pain procedures. He has had a couple of patient's who have had a Genicular Ablation and I was wondering what anesthesia code is best to use for this. I haven't really been able to find much info on this so any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Genicular nerve RF Ablation is typically coded as 64640. If done with pulsed RF, then 64999. I think the crosswalk for 64640 is 01991 but recommend one of the anesthesia coders on the list to confirm
