There are many documents that address the benefits of nebulized lidocaine, what it is used for, and how much to give. I cannot, however find a HCPCS code to charge for the lidocaine? When a physician uses lidocaine in a nebulizer, is there a HCPCS code that can be used for the lidocaine, or can we only charge for the nebulizer?

There is only a lidocaine code for IV Infused. I would think its inclusive. Also depends on the reason as Aetna for example considers experimental and investigation for pain relief for NG tube insertion and Chronic Cough treatment
