Mac converts to general

    Default Mac converts to general

    Pt had two procedures done in the same setting one was done under mac and them second was done under general. I do bill all the procedures under general?

  2. #2
    Default MAC to general
    Assuming that both procedures were done during the same anesthesia session (not one done in the am, one in the pm, etc) then you would bill as general when it converts like that.

    Hope this helps.
