    Default Continuous block catheter done in ASU

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi all, sorry I meant ASC, not ASU

    Can a continuous block catheter be billed with 64448 or 644416 when done in an ASC on an out patient basis? The patient would be returning each day for follow up.

    Also, if it can be billed, how does the ASC bill for this ?

    Thanks so much!
