ABSTRACT
The article focuses on circumstances that modifier 23 (Unusual anesthesia) can be applied in the Medicare Part B. It mentions that modifier 23 can be justified to procedures that happen outside the operating room when the physician furnishes enough documentation of medical necessity. It also mentions on certain conditions that qualify for modifier 23 which do not normally necessitate anesthesia during magnetic resonance imaging including claustrophobia, mental retardation, and cerebral palsy.
