An ER pt had a laceration repaired under conscious sedation. (45 minutes) The only CPT code that came thru the chargemaster for the conscious sedateion was 94762.  Is this correct?

Hello, you probably have the answer by now, but depending on the age of the patient you would refer to the 99143-99150 code set for Moderate Conscious Sedation.
