You have the right idea. There is no code for field avoidance. You will need to adjust your base to five and file the claim hard copy with a letter of explaination. I would be sure to track the reimbursemtn for that claim to ensure that it was based correctly. You may want to identify on the anesthesia record where the providers notates the position of the patient. Giving the payor all the help they can get will aid you in the long run. I hope this helps. Have a great day
