    Default ASC billing for Propofol - We are an Ambulatory Surgery

    AAPC: Back to School
    We are an Ambulatory Surgery Center that performs Gastroenterology procedures only. Colonoscopies and EGDS. Our physicians are looking into using Propofol. We would have a CRNA involved. Has anyone billed for this drug or these services? Any help would be appreciated.

    We do GI and we use Propofol and unless you have a carve out with your insurance it is not billable nor payable.

    So we would need a special "contract" with our insurance companies? Is this for the Propofol and CRNA? Thanks for your help.
