TAP Block is Transversus Abdomiuis Plane Block. We have a call out to the physician that did this procedure as well. Not sure if this is something new that is being done. This is the first one that I have seen.

I asked our anesthesiologist and he said that 64450 is the correct code and append 59 modifier for the TAP procedure.
