General Anesthesia during Excision

    Default General Anesthesia during Excision
    New Call-to-action
    We have a provider who excised a malignant lesion on the forearm under general anesthesia.

    The problem is that we cannot find a code to bill the MAC anesthesia under.

    Does anyone have any advice on this?

    The anesthesia code you would use for the excision would be 00400.

    If the patient had MAC anesthesia, you would bill 00400 with the QS modifier.
