Tina was to be operated on for appendectomy. Local anesthesia was applied to the affected part. During the surgery, the surgeons discovered that the infection had spread to a larger area. To attend to the other portions, they decided to administer general anesthesia. Discuss and explain which modifier will be used to identify her condition. What would be the appropriate CPT code/s? How does the coding effect reimbursement?
Create and describe three situations where the four add-on codes for qualifying circumstances will be used for anesthesia billing.
I am so lost. Can anyone help?
