    Our physicians own an ambulatory surgical center where we use CRNAs. Occassionally, one of the doctors wants the CRNA to come and assess a patient (during an office visit). Is there any way to bill for this or is it bundled into the physician's office visit????

    This might fall under "review and summerization of old records and/or obtaining history from someone other than patient and/or DISCUSSION OF CASE WITH ANOTHER HEALTH CARE PROVIDER" Which be 2 points to added to Medical Decision Making. What type of documentation is the CRNA submitting for this encounter? Hand written or Dictated? Does it resemble an billable office visit?
