    What type of anesthesia is being done for the colonoscopy? General or MAC?

    Who is your Medicare Part B Carrier? Certain Medicare Contractors have Monitored Anesthesia Care LCDs and you would need to check to make sure that the patient meets the medical necessity requirements to have a separate anesthesia provider present instead of just receiving moderate sedation.

    Hi Missy, Thank you so much for your advise, but I need more help please....
    We would use General.
    I do have an LCD for Colorectal Cancer Screening, but being a New CPC, honestly I am struggling with the LCD. I think I need an LCD interpertation course (i did see one on Medicare University) lol.
