Greater Occipital Nerve Block is 64405
Lesser Occipital Nerve Block is 64450

Make sure to check insurance policies. Some insurances do not cover Greater Occipital Nerve Blocks

I would have your provider clarify whether it's the greater or lesser occipital block. And you also want to check with your payer, most insurance companies consider this a experimental.
