    Default Code Descriptions for radiofrequency

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know where I could go to find previous cpt descriptions for radiofrequency? The physician wants me to go back five years.

    If you do not have previous CPT books to look-up check with the AMA (American Medical Association). If you physician think he/she billed wrong they will not get paid from five years ago. This is just a thought to save you the work.

    We have a copies of older verisons of the CPT book. I looked the 2005 copy and it has the same definition as the 2010 for codes 64622-64627. So you can tell the physician that since 2005 the code description has not changed.
