    Question Billing J3301 & J2001???

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a question, patient came in and had Injection with 7cc 1% lidocaine and 1 cc of 40mg/cc kenalog. Dr mixes them together.
    One of our doctors is requesting we add code J2001 so that he can bill for the lidocaine as well as for the Kenalog J3301.

    I did not think that we could bill J2001 separately in this situation??

    Any guidance on this would be great. Thanks

    J2001 is for IV infusion not IM or joint injections. They use the lidocaine as a comfort measure which cannot be charged to the insurance.
