Anesthesia code

  1. #11
    Medical Coding Books
    If the xrays indicate fractures to the head or the neck of the humerus it will be 01620. Anything lower will be 01730 mentioned by Mojo.
    You will need an anesthesia start and stop time.
    You will need the approprite QZ, QX. A physical status above three for commercial carriers will also apply.
    Your billing software should be loaded with the appropriate Taxonomy codes for the crna and the correct values for the anes cpts. If you are going to bill the dme you will need the correct HCPCS II code for the propofol.
    I am somewhat confused by the question you are posing though. Are you billing for the crna or the ed dr or both?

    have you looked at 01730 to bill for your CRNA? I would probably use that one

    find out what code the EDP is billing for the fractures, run the codes thru CCI edits and use 01730 if no bundling issues. Good luck
