Procedure canceled by surgeon after anesthesia given

Tobi Posted Thu 29th of January, 2015 12:31:56 PM

Can you tell me what mod to use to show that a procedure done in the hospital was canceled by the surgeon 48 minutes after anesthesia was give to a Medicare pt. Per Medicare mod 74 is only used for an Ambulatory Surgical Center.
