Thread: Anethesia coding?

  1. #1

    Default Please help!! Anesthesia coding?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone tell me what qualifes to bill a procedure stating "with anesthesia" in the code's indentation?
    Does it strictly depend on what drugs are administered? I'm having trouble locating documentation on what actually supports these codes.
    Thanks a million!
