    Default Anestheia code for 64620

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Morning,
    I have a provider who is doing a MAC for an intercostal radiofrequency ablation. What anesthesia code would be the most appropriate?

    Hi Missy

    you can use anesthesia code 01992, this is what is crosswalking to the procedure code 64620. Hope this helps
