It depends on the payer. A CRNA can place, bill for and get paid for an A-line pre-op. Make sure that if the line is placed before the procedure that your Anesthesia time does not include the time used to place the line. In other words, start anes time one minute after the documented end time on the A line insertion, and instruct your CRNAs to document their time carefully. Check your major payers, some don't cover CRNA services and some do.
Hope this helps.
