    Default Anesthesia Modifiers - I'm wondering if anyone would
    Medical Coding Books
    I'm wondering if anyone would know how to report modifiers for an Anesthesiologist who is supervising two residents during concurrent procedures?
    I know if supervising one (1:1) it would be 00452 AA,GC under the supervising physicians name. Would it be the same for a 1:2 ratio just reported under different patients?

    First, let me preface this with we do not have residents so I do not bill the GC modifier.
    It would appear the QK GC modifiers would be more appropriate as the MDA cannot be personally performing (AA modifier) 2 concurrent cases so that would make it medical direction.

    I'm going to agree, we do use the QK modifier as well
