    AAPC: Back to School
    Can you use the cpt code 20550 with the injections j2001 and j0702? because I keep getting a denial for the j codes. Can someone help.

    first the J2001 is for IV LIDOCAINE not for any other route. This is why it is not reimbursed. There is no way to obtain reimbursement for lidocaine when given or mixed wioth other drugs as a means of comfort. The issue with J0702 is something different. What is the denial reason? Did you use an NDC number is it in the appropriate place on the claim does it have the correct number of digits?
