Our certified coders and billers acknowledge the list of codes and modifiers provided by the CMS for Anesthesia billing and ensure that we stick to it. Anesthesia billing can become complicated as it requires documentation of a high number of records, such as:
Pre-operative assessment – The pre-operative review encompasses the patient’s and their family’s medical history as well as any drug or tobacco habits that have to be considered while working out the necessary dosage of anesthetics.
Anesthesia sheet – The Anesthesia sheet involves the documentation of the following:
Base unit – The base units indicate the level of complexity and skills required for the anesthetic service provided. The CMS publishes the base units annually.
Time unit – This is the time devoted to the patient receiving the anaesthetic or monitoring the patient’s condition before, after, or during surgery. Time units are figured by dividing the total minutes of service by 15.
- Modifiers – Anesthesia modifiers (-AA, -QK, -QY, -QZ, and -QX) explain the role of the anesthesiologist and CRNA in anesthesia procedures. These modifiers are essential for clarification of whether the anesthesia procedure was personally performed by the anesthesiologist, medically directed, or medically supervised.
- Formula – Anesthesia Reimbursement = (Base Units + Time Units + Modifiers) x Conversion Factor
Combined or bundled services – Do not bill the following procedures along with anesthesia procedures.
Do not bill for the Injection of diagnostic or therapeutic substances along with anesthesia procedures (62320 – 62321 and 62324 – 62325), Nerve Blocks (64400 – 64530), Transesophageal Echo (TEE) (93312 – 93318), Laryngoscopy (31505, 31515, 31527), Bronchoscopy (31622, 31645, 31646)
