    Default I&D Guidelines

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone please tell me if I can charge the amount of xylocaine used in addition to the I&D Procedure? I am being told this should be a bundled procedure and I should not charge additional for the medication. Thanks much.

    We do not bill separately for Lidocaine, Xylocaine, Marcaine. They are considered bundled into the actual procedure being performed.
