Question 64450 with breast reconstruction


Best answers
My plastic surgeon is performing a bilateral breast recon w/ TE replacement. He wants to bill for bilateral nerve blocks of the pectoralis major. Wouldn't this be included with the primary px? What if the blocks are used for post op pain management and not a supplemental/intraoperative anesthestic, can it then be billed separately?
