Thread: Moderate Sedation

    Default Moderate Sedation

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am needing some help please with how other facilities are coding and billing moderate sedation when performed by a CRNA. And any resources would be helpful too.

    I was going to try and put this out there again. What I am trying to find is when we do scopes such as EGD or Colonoscopy we bring our CRNAs in however they are filling out conscious sedation forms. In order to justify that we can code as anesthesia and bill out as anesthesia units they need to fill out an anesthesia form that meets MAC/DEEP sedation requirements. Same as when they are called into the ER. Does anyone have any suggestions or guidelines/resouces to help me.
