Thread: Close Reduction THA w/IV Sedation.

    Default Close Reduction THA w/IV Sedation.

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to find out if anyone has any suggestions or ideas on billing 27266-52 with the use of IV sedation of fentanyl and Versed.

    Would this be the same as a regional block. I don't believe so.

    Any comments would be appreciated.

    No not regional, it's conscious sedation and I'd consider it general.
