UCR Anesthesia Fee Calculations and Base Units - Now Available!

Christine Woolstenhulme, QMC QCC CMCS CPC CMRS

As per customer request, Find-A-Code now offers UCR Anesthesia Fee Calculations along with CMS and ASA. The anesthesia fee calculations can be found under the Fees section of the code and under the Anesthesia Fee Information.  

  • Time units are computed by dividing the reported anesthesia time by 15 minutes (17 minutes / 15 minutes = 1.13 units).

NOTE: Always verify with your payer the appropriate use of physical status modifiers. For example, CMS does not pay additional units for physical status using these modifiers.
