01995 Code deleted effective 12/31/2006
The link from 2005 you provided is prior to the code being deleted.
I would review the record available, might be additional sedation being provided other than soley a bier block and depending on the facility performed, the anesthesia for the case was probally provided by a provider other the performing physician.
Based on NCCI edits 01810 is column two code of column one code 64721 and modifier is not allowed.
I also believe that the physician performing the procedure can not also report the anesthesia code like 01810 from a standpoint other NCCI issues.
