    AAPC: Back to School
    Can an anesthesia block given for surgery purposes be billed on a 1500 for the anesthesiologist and on a ub-04 for the facility expenses?

    The nerve block can be billed on a separate claim form from the claim for the surgery procedure, and the anesthesia provider can be listed as the performing provider on the claim;
    If the nerve block is billed on the same claim form as the surgery, though, when using a UB-04 form, a 59 modifier can be appended;
