If the block is not being used as the mode of anesthesia I would bill:
64445-59 (single injection popliteal block) OR 64446-59 (continuous)
76942-26 MUST save image and have clear documentation of ultrasound "interpretation"
I'm not sure of the rationale for billing J3490 - what unclassified drug are you supplying??
Of note, we have had some Medicare payment issues when 76942 is billed by CRNA. Medicare has denied most as not billable by CRNA provider specialty.
