The provider I code for has begun doing some injections in the office. He's using Bupivacaine for the injections. No other meds are used for the injections (such as Depo-Medrol). An example is: 0.50 mg Bupivacaine.

What would be the best way to bill this? I know C9290 is for the ASC and the S0020 is not covered by Medicare.

Thank you

All of the "caines" (marcaine, bupivacine, etc.) are included in the injection itself. I've had one insurance company that denied without a medication, so you can put in a medication with a zero dollar charge if that happens to you.
