Billing 64640 genicular nerve radiofrequency ablation


Best answers
My physical medicine and rehab physician performs nerve blocks in particular started to do "genicular nerve radiofrequency ablation." He instructs me its x3 (levels) These are done in a facility. The office visit prior to the nerve block indicates the medical necessity for the nerve block, according to clinical policies. The dx is osteoarthritis knee. How is this correctly billed unilaterally and bilaterally. I'm not sure the insurance carriers are reimbursing correctly but I need some feedback. I don't bill any drugs. The facility bills for that. I bill 64640 3 units...... Anyone have experience with this? Thank you for any help.....
