the physician gave Brevital 200mg IV instead of Propofol since the pateint has egg allergy . So how do we bill Anesthesia with that ?

It seems that you are asking for injection code for Brevital (methohexital sodium). There is no specific injection code for Brevital, so we will use code J3490 (unclassified drugs). As far as anesthesia CPT goes, Brevital (methohexital sodium) is an alternative drug of propofol, so coding guidelines will remain the same. CPT code will depend on the type of surgery performed and on which body part.
