Yes, you need to check your MAC's LCD diagnosis list for Monitored Anesthesia Care, and submit a code on that list that is documented on the anesthesia record.

I believe MAC lcd is article# A57361. Check the medical records if patient has history or review of systems: hypertension, renal disease, CAD, hypothyrodism or other comorbidities-check the lcd list and add any of those dx to your claim.
