    Talking Facility Fee for ASC for Blocks

    AAPC: Back to School

    Does anyone know if an ASC can charge a facility fee for administering blocks? Where can I find the information regarding this issue?

    Thanks for the help!

    I charge for inter scalene blocks when we do shoulder surgery's. Is that what you are wondering. There is another kind of block as well, but cant think of it right now.
