You can go to CMS.gov and look up LCD's for your carrier.
64490-64493 will be under:
Facet Joint Injections, Medial Branch Blocks, and Facet Joint Radiofrequency Neurotomy Policy
Keep in mind that Facet joint injections and Medial branch blocks are coded using 64490-64493.
Many insurance companies have policies on these. You will have to check with them individually.
