    Default Anesthesia Coding for 76942
    Medical Coding Books
    We are wondering if can bill for the ultrasound guided nerve block (76942). I dont know if the anesthesiologist is doing the ultrasound or if they are just looking at the screen while a tech does the ultrasound. Or do we just bill for the nerve block?

    We are billing for the US guide, as long as our anes have the documentation on the anes records and in the chart they have a picture.
    Hope that helps.
