CPT for shoulder reduction

    Default CPT for shoulder reduction

    Would 23655 be appropriate code for closed reduction of shoulder dislocation with conscious sedation?

    Thanks for any help.

    No, conscious sedation is not an anesthesia service. Code the reduction without anesthesia and use the CS codes in the Medicine section, 99143... with supporting documentation which is usually a moderate (conscious) sedation flowsheet.
