Hello,
I do not have my new CPT books yet and I was wondering if these are the anesthesia cross walk codes you are using in 2022 for :
MBB range 64490 - 64493 01937 or 01938
RFA range 64633 - 64635 01939 or 01940
TFESI 64479 - 64483 - I would assume we would use 01937 or 01938 depending on region
ESI will be 01937 or 01938
Thank you

Below is what I am also using:

MBB range 64490 - 64493 01937 or 01938
RFA range 64633 - 64635 01939 or 01940
TFESI 64479 - 64483 -01937 or 01938 depending on region
ESI will be 01937 or 01938

From AMA CPT Changes 2022:

Clinical Example (01937) A 67-year-old female presents with chronic neck pain radiating toward her right shoulder. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan demonstrated facet arthropathy at C4-C5 and multilevel degenerative disc disease. Diagnostic testing with cervical facet blocks under fluoroscopic guidance on the right at the C4-C5 level is indicated.

Clinical Example (01938) A 71-year-old male with a history of previous laminectomy at L4-L5 presents with recurrent right leg pain, the ability to stand for only 10 minutes and walk less than one block, and minimal problems sitting. MRI with contrast material shows a small recurrent herniation between L4-L5 with scar tissue and neurodiagnostic studies compatible with L5 radiculopathy. He undergoes a transforaminal epidural injection of an anesthetic and/ or anti-inflammatory agent at the L5-SI level.

Clinical Example (01939) A 65-year-old female with constant neck pain caused by degenerative disc disease and cervical spondylosis has received insufficient relief with conservative treatments. Previous trials of cervical medial branch nerve blocks proved beneficial (separately reported). Radiofrequency neurotomy is performed on two medial branch nerves innervating the unilateral symptomatic facet joint.

Clinical Example (01940) A 65-year-old male with constant low-back pain due to degenerative disc disease and facet arthropathy has received insufficient relief with conservative treatments. Previous trials of lumbar medial branch nerve blocks proved beneficial (separately reported). He undergoes radiofrequency neurotomy of the two medial branch nerves innervating the unilateral symptomatic facet joint

Clinical Example (01941) A 75-year-old female develops sudden, severe mid-back pain after lifting her grandchild. Plain radiographs reveal an acute compression fracture with severe anterior wedging involving T10 and consequent new kyphosis. Pain persists despite a period of conservative care. After referral, percutaneous thoracic vertebral augmentation (and bone biopsy, if indicated) is performed.

Clinical Example (01942) A 75-year-old female presents with severe, persistent lowback pain and progressive spinal deformity secondary to osteoporotic vertebral collapse. Plain radiographs reveal an acute compression fracture of L3. Despite conservative medical management, pain persists. Percutaneous lumbar vertebral augmentation (and bone biopsy, if indicated) is performed.
