Thread: ASCs Bill Pre-Op Pain Block for Post-Op Pain?

  1. #1

    Default ASCs Bill Pre-Op Pain Block for Post-Op Pain?

    AAPC: Back to School
    We are an ASC researching billing for pre-operative anesthesia for post-operative pain block, (e.g.: interscalene block). Anybody know what type of documentation is needed, (anesthesia note on op report or separate documentation by surgeon)? Any other tips?

    We use a separate regional anesthesia form that is filled out by the anesthesiologist who is performing the block.
    If you email me i can forward you a copy

    make sure you have the regional block codes included in your contracts!

    Caprice w.-- cpc, (asc biller)
