1. We have this doctor that is complaining about not getting paid for his visit and removal of a continuous femoral nerve block ( which has a 10 day global period). I have explained this but he just doesn't agree with me.

2. Then this same doctor states he wants to get paid for continuous spinal drugs he administers to the patient, the same patient that is having a continuous femoral block. (now mind you this is the first time he is mentioning the spinal part and never have i seen it documented in his reports) The question i am having on this one is can the doctor get paid for the spinal as well and what code would i use. would I use 62319? If it is mentioned in his report.

(All this is being done by an anesthesiologist in a hospital on an in patient basis)
