    Question MAC provided in a Dentist Office

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Afternoon,
    Does anyone have information on how we would bill for Monitored Anesthesia care provided by a CRNA for procedures provided in a Dentist office. Would we bill 00170 to just the patient's Medical insurance?

    The CRNA would be utilized for surgical extraction of impacted teeth, dental implants, etc.

    Any additional information and/or resources would be helpful.

    Thank you!

    Yes bill medical insurance, example of a primary diagnosis is 521.00. Additional diagnoses can be used to describe certain conditions that patient might have which require MAC performed by a CRNA in that setting.
