    We have an ansethesiologist that wants to bill for H/P's for patients that the surgeon has not done one on. Does anyone know if they can do this or is it part of their anesthesia services also?

    The anesthesiologist's pre anesthesia evaluation would be part of their anesthesia service.

    The anesthesia care package consists of preoperative evaluation, standard preparation and monitoring services, administration of anesthesia, and post-anesthesia recovery care.
    Preoperative evaluation includes a sufficient history and physical examination so that the risk of adverse reactions can be minimized, alternative approaches to anesthesia planned, and all questions regarding the anesthesia procedure by the patient answered.

    Let me re-enforce that: We have just put Anesthesiologists billing E/M on our next list of procedures to look for regarding fraudulent billing (which is not to say it cannot ever happen, but someting to be explored by an SIU). Maybe he wants to stay away from being investigated.
