I'm new to anesthesia coding and have kind of a basic silly question. Is there ever a time when an anesthesiologist would be billing for just moderate conscious sedation alone? Our anesthesiologist is attending surgeries at a small surgery center. I'm assuming he's doing monitored anesthesia care but we questioned if there was ever a time when he's just doing moderate sedation. We're second guessing ourselves. Some of the procedures (but not all) are just super basic like cataracts and cavities in children.
