    Default Lidocaine added to nebulizer treatment

    AAPC: Back to School
    Have encounter where "combineb w/2.5cc 4% lidocaine" was given. Code only J7620 or both J7620 & J3490?

    Have the phrase "charge for no "caine", ie marcaine/lidocaine" running through my brain.

    Don't know why I can't wrap my head around this one this morning. Senior moment I guess.

    Please help!

    Last I saw Lidocaine & Marcaine are no longer separately coded. Just code for the Albuterol
