    You're going to have to be more specific than that...

    Can you post the redacted op note?

    I don't have complete report but I day before the pain management doctor has done the procedure for fracture and tendon repair. For the PM doctor has written a note "pt came in for severe pain, dr. gave him i.v. 2 mg Versed and 50 mg Demerol given through i.v."

    I don't have any experience coding IV's. I'm sure someone here does though.

    You don't mention where the Pain Doctor saw the patient at.

    If in the office setting, look at 96374 and +96375 for IV push of drugs. Under the Medicare physician fee schedule, these codes are not reimbursed in a facility site of service.

    Would this be like a "Bier Block"?
