Hi Jennifer,
I did my residency in PM&R with an anesthesia pain fellowship. Can I bill out for anesthesia even my residency is in PM&R?  I have the fellowship in anesthesia pain.

Thanks, Dr. R


I'm fine with it from a licensure/compliance standpoint.  I recommend checking with a billing expert whether the carriers will have an issue paying or in post payment on review.  It is getting tougher and tougher with credentialing and approved services...
