    (Base Units + Time Units + Mod Units) X Local Anesthesia CF

  2. #2

  4. #4
    Yes, enter the charge as a 'regular' anesthesia charge but add the modifier QS and a diagnosis code to cover the MAC if applicable. Let me know if you need addl info and I will be glad to help.

    The -G8 and -G9 modifiers are also pertinent to MAC. If using either of these modifiers you do not report the QS.
