OTHER ANESTHESIA SERVICES - CRNA

OTHER ANESTHESIA SERVICES

Anesthesiologists and non-medically directed CRNAs (within the scope of their license) may bill for the following additional services: Swan-Ganz placement or any other central venous pressure line, critical care visits, emergency intubations, spinal puncture, and blood patch. Payment for these specific services is based on the RBRVS payment system. Time units are not billable for these services.

They may also bill for cardiopulmonary resuscitation performed in conjunction with the anesthesia procedure or outside the operating suite.
