MAC sedation for TEE

    Default MAC sedation for TEE

    I was wondering what code you would use for a MAC sedation for a TEE.

    00520 or 00500?

    We use 01922 with a QS modifier in addition to any other appropriate modifier(s). The QS shows MAC sedation was used. You'll need to list a supporting diagnosis for using MAC too.
