Bladder instillation

  1. Default Bladder instillation
    Medical Coding Books
    How do I code for the use of Lidocaine in the mixture instilled in a patient? My doctor mixes 20ml of 2% Lidocaine with 20 ml of sodium bicarbonate and 10ml of Heparin.

    51700-Bladder irrigation
    J1644-10ml Heparin
    J3490-20 ml sodium bicarbonate
    ?????-20 ml of 2% lidocaine

    We just bill for the Heparin.

    The lidocaine code is J2001, but not separately billable. Hope this helps, Pam
