My question is more for the ASC billing the post-operative block done in a pre-operative holding area billing for the technical portion. The surgeon request the block. The anesthesiologist does the block and bills the global fee. No TC/PC modifier billed. Since professional NCCI edits apply to my ASC facility bill, wouldn't the ASC portion be denied? This is what I am thinking per edits. It is the same facility provider that provided the facility for the surgery. There is not a second “provider”, so the override is not allowed.

Am I off base here? Wouldn't that be similar to "double dipping"?

Thank you for your input!!
