Presented by: Pamela Linton, CPC, CANPC, Corporate Coding Manager – Anesthesia and Pain Management, Zotec Partners

01935 and 01936, the codes for anesthesia for percutaneous image-guided procedures of the spine or spinal cord, were created in 2008 and represented millions of dollars a year for anesthesia groups. Now those codes have been deleted and replaced with six new codes that are based on the procedure performed and the section of the spine treated. Your team must understand these new codes to prevent snarls in your revenue cycle and an avalanche of denials for these high-dollar, high-utilization services.

This one-hour webinar will guide you through the update, show you how to avoid documentation and coding risks, and offer solutions your practice can use right away.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Crosswalk various procedure codes to the appropriate anesthesia code
  • Select an anesthesia code when there is no crosswalk to a procedure
  • Review the anesthesia provider’s documentation and ensure it supports the service


  • Codes 01937–01942. Discover how the new codes’ structure can assist with code selection.
  • Examples of each service. Review scenarios to cement your understanding of each new anesthesia service.
  • Correct crosswalking. Obtain information that will help you quickly connect a percutaneous image-guided spine procedure to the appropriate anesthesia service.
  • MAC impact. Learn how the new codes intersect with monitored anesthesia care for chronic pain blocks such as epidurals.
  • Documentation review. Receive documentation guidance to share with your anesthesia providers and tips you can use to clear up trouble spots.
  • Q&A. Ask our speaker questions about the new codes.
