Billing for Washed RBCs

Greetings - we are reviewing our billing practices for washed RBCs.  I cannot find any P codes for washed RBCs outside of frozen/deglycerolized red blood cells.  How are others billing for washing of RBC units? Is P9057 only a proper match if the product was frozen and deglycerolized?  Many thanks in anticipation of your guidance.

P9022 is the billing code for Washed Red Blood Cells.  We use that and charge and irradiation fee (if needed) separately.

From the AABB Billing Guide:

P9022 Washed red blood cells unit
