1. How Do We Code Anesthesia In CPT Coding?

General Anesthesia can be billed with CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) codes ranging from CPT 00100 to CPT 01999.

Payments for operative anesthesia are determined by;

  • base units, the standard base units are assigned by ASA (American Society of Anesthesiologists), and
  • time units;
  • multiplied by the conversion factor.

The full process of how to code anesthesia in CPT coding is described in this billing guide.

2. What Are Base Units?

Base units are assigned to the CPT codes for anesthesia by ASA (American Society of Anesthesiologists) to establish fee schedule allowances.

The risk, complexity, and skills needed to perform an anesthesia service are taken into account with base units. The services are paid based on base units (and time units).

Base units for anesthesia CPT codes are published on the Anesthesiologists Center page of CMS and updated annually.

3. What Are Time Units?

Time units for anesthesia codes define the period of which the provider is with the patient.

Start times begin when the anesthesia provider starts to prepare the patient and end when the provider stops providing the anesthesia service. Usually this is when the patient is safely under postoperative care.

The time units are continuous (start to end) and the anesthesia practitioner can add them around interuptions.

Claims need to include time units in minutes. Hours have to be converted to minutes. The total amount of time (in minutes) can be entered in CMS 1500 claim, item 24G or other electronic media claim.

4. What Is An Anesthesia Conversion Factor?

Anesthesia conversion factors are used to compute the amount that is allowable for anesthesia services.

Anesthesia conversion factors are annually updated by payment localities and listed on the Anesthesiologists Center page of CMS.

First the participating physician anesthesia conversion factor is listed, followed by the participating physician anesthesia conversion factor and the last column represents the the non-medically directed conversion factor.
