Thread: Billing anesthesia for two different days...

    Default Billing anesthesia for two different days...

    AAPC: Back to School
    My question is if a procedure starts on one day and isn't finished until the next day, how do you bill your from and to times?

    Example - Surgery starts at 23:30pm on June 1st and ends at 1:00am on June 2nd

    How would this be billed out?

    Thanks for your help.

    You would bill the date of service that the procedure started on with the appropriate times. In your case 6-1-10 would be date of service. Start time would be 2330 and end time 0100.
