    Question New to Anesthesia coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am relatively new to anesthesia coding and had a question. We have CRNA's where I code for and they give a labor epidural and also mark on their (fee ticket) a continuous epidural pump. Do I use the 01967 and a 62319(with a 59 mod)? or am I just confused altogether????

    When you use the anesthesia code 01967 that includes the epidural. You should not bill it separately. That applies to whether it is a CRNA or a Anesthesiologist you are billing for. Holly M.
