We are an ASC researching billing for pre-operative anesthesia for post-operative pain block, (e.g.: interscalene block). Anybody know what type of documentation is needed, (anesthesia note on op report or separate documentation by surgeon)? Any other tips?

We use a separate regional anesthesia form that is filled out by the anesthesiologist who is performing the block.
If you email me i can forward you a copy

make sure you have the regional block codes included in your contracts!
