    We do. It is considered a technique of general anesthesia and bill as we would any general anesthesia service. We are tracking it in our billing program as a separate mode of anesthesia (we enter the different modes i.e. general, regional (other), TIVA, MAC, spinal, local) for reporting purposes.
