    Default CRNA postoperative pain management

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know where I would be able to find according to Medicare the guidelines for billing a CRNA for postoperative pain management. One of the Dr's would like written proof.

    Look at Chapter 12 of the CMS manual. Sections 50 and 140 have anesthesia billing specifications. I have attached the web link below.
