    Can a provider bill Anesthesia code 01936 when they've performed a Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection?

    A provider other than the physician performing the block can report the anesthesia code---I use 01992 for transforminal blocks, intralaminar single or continous epidurals, facet blocks, and SI joint blocks.

    I reserve 01936 for radiofrequency ablation, vertebroplasty, percutaneous discectomy, SCS trial, lysis of epidural adhesions, or mininmally invasive lumbar decompression
