Anaesthesia in Connection with a Dental Service - (Items 22900 and 22905)

Items 22900 and 22905 cover the administration of  anaesthesia in connection with a dental service that is not a service covered by an item in the Medicare Benefits Schedule i.e removal of teeth and restorative dental work. Therefore, the requirement that anaesthesia be performed in association with an 'eligible' service (as defined in point T10.2) does not apply to dental anaesthesia items 22900 and 22905.
