I have a question regarding how to properly code the anesthesia services performed in an ASC for a TVA (58970) done by our physician. We have a CRNA who performs the anesthesia (IV). The patient is non-responsive with an oyxgen mask, not intubated and all drugs are IV administration. I think the nurse referred to it as TIVA but I'm not 100% certain.

Anyway, what code should the CRNA (not part of our clinic) charge. 00940 ??
From what I can gather from the CRNA billing service, they are billing 99244 to the insurance company which makes no sense to me.

Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated !
