    You cannot bill for local anesthesia for a procedure. See the Surgical Package Definition in CPT. Do not use J2001 as that is for IV infusion.

    Lisa ,well if local for the integumentary I agree. if it was a pudental block , won't it be considered a regional?; more over here, it is more likely that the physician gave a pudental for the a better dilation of the cx of a stenosed Cx or to manage with stricture or pinhole OS?

    The CPT Surgical Package Definition applies to all procedures.
