Thread: Lumbar Facet Injection using Bupivacaine

    Default Lumbar Facet Injection using Bupivacaine

    AAPC: Back to School
    I know that when Bupivacaine is used with for example Depo-Medrol we do not bill for the bupivacaine. But if bupivacaine is the only drug that used for these injections, how do we bill for it? Would you use the J3490? This is for Medicare. What would you put in the narrative line?
