    Trying to solve some confusion here: Is Marcaine unbillable with Celestone?

    We have companies that do pay that is why I am asking.

    We still use the old code of J0670. I know this is not correct.

    as far as I know its not billable either. It is consider an analgesic which would be considered an integral part of the procedure being performed ie 20610.
