    AAPC: Back to School
    A physician is performing pain management procedures in an ASC.
    The ASC employs a "trained qualified observer" who is documenting for conscious sedation. Is 99144 a billable service by the physician since he is responsible for overseeing the ASC employee?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    No 99144 is not payable in an ASC

    Can the physician charge for it though on his billing? I understand that the ASC cannot bill for it....
