    can a CRNA bill an office E/M 99201 - 99203 category if pt is coming in office for pain management?

    I would check the Medicare website to see if CRNAs are 'allowed' to bill E&M codes. Hope this helps.

    Hi miss407, I found this info. on chapter II, version 15.3 of the NCCI manual:[/I][/I]"Anesthesia practitioners other than anesthesiologists cannot report E/M codes except when a surgery is cancelled (E/M service is allowed if pre-op evaluation done)"
    so unless a surgical case is cancelled, CRNA'S cannot report E/M services,

    I hope it helps!
