Nerve Blocks

I am receiving denials from insurance company on all nerve blocks. These are done by the Anesthesiologist at the request of the surgeon. They are mostly done previous to Shoulder procedures. I am billing them on the same claim but listed as a separate item and using modifier 59. The insurance company insist that this code should be considered as part of the anesthesia. I have been researching this subject, and found that it is not. Anybody encountered this situation. Please share solution.

Thanks
