Your monthly, risk-free subscription makes it easy for your anesthesia practice to stay up-to-date, compliant, and profitable.

Coding anesthesia procedures is not easy considering the frequent changes and complexities to federal regs. In addition to navigating the challenges related to calculating time, coding multiple line placements, and the rules for personally performed and medically supervised, you need to get up to speed on CPT®, ICD-10, and HCPCS code changes — to say nothing of quarterly CCI edits, revisions to modifiers, payer policies, the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, and the OIG watch list.

Missing even subtle code and guideline revisions is costly. If you don’t stay on top of the nuanced reporting requirements, you stand to lose significant reimbursement and may even invite civil penalties. While the prospect of keeping up with a moving landscape can seem daunting, Anesthesia Coding Alert is here to help.

Stay compliant and grow your profit margin with critical, to-the-point monthly guidance sure to enhance your reporting accuracy and coding know-how.

Every monthly issue of Anesthesia Coding Alert lays out a trove of information, simplifying the challenges you face and delivering bankable answers to questions like:

  • How to determine whether to use 00944 or 00840 when Anesthesia Crosswalk crosses CPT® code 58550 to 00944, with 00840 as an alternate?
  • Coding for hypothermia? When is it incorrect to append +99116?
  • During an inguinal hernia repair (49650), the anesthesiologist placed a single-injection intrathecal block to interspace L2-3 during an inguinal hernia repair (49650). How do I report intrathecal block?
  • How to code for anesthesia related to angioplasty on a dialysis circuit?
  • Parkinsonism and Parkinson’s disease — what is the difference and what ICD-10 codes should I report for secondary Parkinsonism?
