Sacral Nerve Destruction

March 16, 2017

My physician performed a sacral nerve destruction at S1, S2, S3 and S4. I am not certain how to code this. Should I report 64640 only once?

You should report 64640 (Destruction by neurolytic agent, other peripheral nerve or branch) for each level. You should report 64640 x 4 (4 units).

*This response is based on the best information available as of 03/16/17.
