    If one of our anesthesiologists places a epidural hoping that the pt would give birth to a demised pregnancy and the pt never did and they had to end up doing a d&c, which a different anesthesiologist group did the second procedure can we bill for the epidural?

  2. Cool anesthesia
    I Believe You Can But You Need A Modifier...try Modifier 74..let Me Know If This Works

  3. Default anesthesia
    They Can Not Bill For The Second Procedure..sorry I Did Not Explain This In My First E-mail.

    I think you can. Charge the first epidural as a base charge(62318) with a pain diagnosis(625.9)
