Written by Rachel Fields | January 24, 2013

Anesthesia Business Consultants is working to clarifying confusion about medical necessity for GI and endoscopy anesthesia bills, according to Herald Online.

Payors have begun making medical necessity requirements more stringent, especially for procedures that require only conscious or moderate sedation, according to the report.

Physicians and staff should keep up-to-date on changes payors make to their medical necessity to know when a patient is considered healthy enough for endoscopy with sedation or when their condition would support general anesthesia.
