"he wants to bill the CPT codes not the ASA codes"...by CPT do you mean the procedure codes from the surgery section, as opposed to the actual anesthesia codes? If so, then as far as I know that is incorrect. If the Dr. is providing anesthesia services, then he should be using anesthesia codes, not the code for the procedure requiring anesthesia. It's possible some payors may require you to bill differently, but I think for the most part you would use the anesthesia code. Remember you should really only use the code that represents the service(s)/procedure(s) being performed. That's why the anesthesia codes exist, cause they're supposed to be used. Hope this helps!
