We bill for all cases cancelled after induction. I have gone through yearly external audits for over 10 years and have not had a single auditor who has had an issue with our cancelled case charges. Incidently, I do NOT bill the -52 modifier as all aspects of an anesthesia service have been performed. I do bill the appropriate V64.x code to inform the payer of the cancelled/discontinued surgical procedure.
I would be interested in seeing the Medicare policy you found stating this your case is not billable. Please attach to link.
