    Our provider did an epidural injection and also an iv was done where the patient had a iv push of versed. my question is this do i charge for the iv and the versed or is that included with the procedure 62311?

    I believe those are included. Read the notes following 62310, I think that will help answer your question

    You could use code 99144 along with 62311, there aren't CCI edits according to my software, but some payers will consider this included, however there are others that will pay for this due to the fact the sedation is optional for the epidural.

    Also before reporting 99144, read the documentation requirements for this code.
