code location

I have the 2016 CPT Professional Edition and can't locate these codes at all. Where are you finding them?

what if the nurse administered
this drug can i still bill for this


It depends on how involved the nurse was with assisting with the actual procedure the sedation supports:


From the CPT book on the trained observer codes:


MS provided by different physician or other qualified health care professional (not the physician or qualified health care professional who is performing the procedure MS is supporting)

I have the 2016 CPT Professional Edition and can't locate these codes at all. Where are you finding them?


You need to get an updated book. Its a new code in 2017. The 2016 book should not be used for dates of service in 2017.

These are new codes for 2017.I do not believe the nurse is allowed to perform this service. It states physician or other qualified professional performing the service that requires the sedation.
