Use of ASA codes

  1. Red face Use of ASA codes
    New Call-to-action
    Could someone point me to definitive sourcing within the CMS website which states that they will only accept ASA codes for anesthesia (00100-01999) as opposed to surgical codes for anesthesia?

    Section 50 (page 115) details Anesthesiology services, including how they will be payed, with base rates, times, units, etc. This section also directs you to the anesthesiology page with the procedure codes to be used, and how the base rates and times are calculated.

    medicare will only accept asa codes... depending on the inusrance company, we also use the cpt (surgical) codes. majority of the payers, however, accept and pay using the asa.

    hope this helps!
