    Default RFA of T8, T9, T10 and T11

    AAPC: Back to School
    Utilizing the 2012 codes, would this set of RFA injections be billed as 64633, 64634 or 64633, 64634, 64634-76?

    You need more information.
    Facet joints are between 2 levels, so were the injections at
    T8-T9, T9-T10, and T10-T11 (64633, 64634 x 2) OR
    T8-T9, and T10-T11? (64633, 64634)
    (Assuming that either fluoro or CT guidance was documented - code 64999.)

    T8 medial branch at T9 anatomical location
    T9 medial branch at T10 anatomical location
    T10 medial branch at T11 anatomcial locaation
    T11 medial branch blocked at T12 anatomcal location

    T8-T11 innervating levels T9/10,T10/11, T11/12

    4 Radiofrequency lesions for 3 facet levels 64633 64634 x 2

    "RFA of" sounds like the medial branches being individually referred to not facet levels broken out by commas
