The only code I'm finding for this is 64999. But I know is for Pulsed Radiofrequency. I'm thinking the correct cpt for an intercostal RFA is 64620 for peripheral nerves..

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

64999 is correct for RFA of intercostal nerve. In the 2019 CPT manual on page 438 in the section description, it specifically states to us 64999 for pulsed radiofrequency.

I disagree - 64620 would be correct if you are not coding for a pulsed radiofrequency modality.
