Has anyone ever filed a claim from the ASC with the modifier 73? The way I understand it is that even if the patient was not in the OR and not administerd anesthesia, maybe only in pre op I can add the modifier 73 to the CPT code I would have used as if the patient had the procedure. Dr. did not dictate anything but I have nursing notes in the chart documenting everything that was done up to the point of being discontinued. I have billed the 74 on a case that anesthesia had been given and in the OR but this is the first time I have attempted to code something that never received any anesthesia.
Any clarification would be appreciated.
Please feel free to email me if you would like.
Thanks
