Anesthesia is the administration of a drug or gas to induce partial or complete loss of consciousness. Services involving administration of anesthesia should be reported by the use of the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) anesthesia five-digit procedure code plus modifier codes.
Surgery codes are not appropriate unless the anesthesiologist or Qualified Nonphysician Anesthetist is performing the surgical procedure. An anesthesiologist, Qualified Non physician Anesthetist or an Anesthesia Assistant (AA) can provide anesthesia services. The anesthesiologist and the Qualified Non physician Anesthetist can bill separately for anesthesia services they personally perform.
In cases of medical direction, both the anesthesiologist and the Qualified Non physician Anesthetist would bill Medicare for their component of the procedure. Each provider should use the appropriate anesthesia modifier.
