  1. Default box 24G
    Exam Training Packages
    When billing for the anesthesologist placing the epidural for post op pain management in box 24G do you bill total units as 9 on only one unit since the doctor is the acting surgeon?

  2. #2
    Default Post op Injection
    If it is a post-op pain injection wouldn't it be billed as type of service 2 -- no units billed?

  3. #3
    Yes, it would be billed as TOS 2 and in Box 24G "1" unit. You are correct, the anesthesia provider is performing a surgical service and is billed according to surgical guidelines - the same principle applies for other surgical procedures performed by the anesthesia provider (i.e. aline, CVP........)
