Trigger Point Injection w/Lidocain

  1. #1
    Default Trigger Point Injection w/Lidocain
    New Call-to-action
    My pain doctor performed a Trigger Point injection with only Lidocaine.

    J2001 is for IV Infusion, so I know I cannot bill this code. I have found a couple articles that the Lidocaine is inclusive to the E/M or in this case, the procedure code. This is was performed in the office.

    Any direction on this would be greatly appreciated.

    the "caines" are inclusive to the RVU of an injection code as it falls under local anesthetic
