I am coding an anesthesia case for a patient that expired during the procedure. Are there any special modifiers or billing guidelines that come into play?

No additional modifier is applicable. If intra-operative resuscitation efforts were performed (i.e. CPR) it is not separately billable but if invasive lines were placed (i.e. aline, CVP...) they would be billable.
