Conscious Sedation Documentation

    Default Conscious Sedation Documentation
    Medical Coding Books
    Can someone help me out with where to find the documentation requirements for Conscious Sedation? I'm not familiar with this procedure at all, and I was wondering if it is sufficient for the physician to simply document that this was done or is he required to document more information such as the time?

    Check out the CPT book under Sedation, Moderate. Codes 99142-99150. Also check out the 2008 Relative Value Guide, pgs 46-47. Hope this helps.
