Anesthesia for tubal ligation

  1. Default Anesthesia for tubal ligation
    Medical Coding Books
    Can I billed separately anesthesia for tubal ligation performed on the same day as a
    vaginal delivery with epidural anesthesia?

  2. Default
    ACCORDING TO THE LAWS YOU CAN ONLY BILL 1 SERVICE PER DAY FOR ANESTHESIA
    SO YOU WOULD COUNT ALL OF YOUR TIME BUT WOULD ONLY USE THE CODE FOR YOUR DELIVERY. I ADD A ADX V25.5 SO THE INSURANCE IS AWARE THAT STERILIZATION WAS ALSO DONE ON THAT DATE OF SERVICE

    Bill for the vaginal delivery and add time for tubal with dx code for sterilization

    Our office bills both charges separately. We add a 78 modifier to the sterilization and get paid every time.

    I have gotten denials for 58611 (add on) when billing 01961, so do I need to be adding a modifier? None of them seem appropriate.
