5 anesthesia codes removed from the inpatient-only list

CMS removed five anesthesia common procedure terminology codes from the inpatient-only list for 2020.

CMS removed the CPT codes because they are related to procedures already removed from the inpatient-only list.

The five codes removed from the list:

1. CPT code 00670: Anesthesia for extensive spine and spinal cord procedures
2. CPT code 00802: Anesthesia for procedures on lower anterior abdominal wall panniculectomy
