    I was wondering would crossed finger flaps be 15740 or more like 15574?

    15574 is without inclusion of a vascular pedicle (15570-15576).
    15740 is with (as code states), it is usually transferred through a tunnel underneath the skin. Hope this helps you. I use 15574 for crossfinger flap, but verify with your op note.
