Thread: Breast Exam under anesthesia

    Default Breast Exam under anesthesia

    AAPC: Back to School
    Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how or if to bill for a breast exam under anesthesia? Our patient had a hysteroscopy w/ endometrial ablation and a breast exam under anesthesia. She does have a history of fibrocystic breast disease - but im still unsure of how to bill this or if i should?? Any thoughts?? Thanks in advance!

    There's no code for a breast exam under anesthesia. You would bill out a regular E&M code with a 25 modifier for this portion of the service provided that day.
