Thread: Need modifier for J2001

    Default Need modifier for J2001

    AAPC: Back to School
    CCI edit tells me if I bill J2001 with either code 51700 or 51720 that I need to attach a modifier to J2001, any help on what that might be?

    J2001 is for IV lidocaine. You can't code for lidocaine with these procedures.
