Thread: injection coding

    Default injection coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    My physician performs visco supplementation injections in our office. Can I bill seperately for the xylocaine/lidocaine or is that included in 20610. The Synvisc is billed seperately, but I have not billed the numbing agent seperately. What code should I use?

    The lidocaine/xylocaine will be bundled into 20610. Also, J2001 is administered intravenoulsy.

    Default steroid injections

    If celestone/depo medrol is injected, is there only one general code or is there a code for individual amounts of the medication

    you would not code for the celestone as its bundled, however the steroid is coded seperately
