It says that if you are reporting anesthesia services, they will only accept the anesthesia codes 00100-01999 with the modifiers, instead of allowing a CPT code from outside that range with an anesthesia modifier. So if you have a CPT code for the procedure, it will have to be crosswalked to the anesthesia code for the claim. Minutes are still reported.
If the anesthesia provider is reporting performing a procedure, they would use the CPT code to report the procedure without anesthesia modifiers since they wouldn't need it on an non-anesthesia code.
I hope that helps.
