    Default Can you bill for Marcaine?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Performed a digital block for laceration repair using lido/marcaine 3cc injected flexor tendon sheath. Can we bill for this or is it included in the 12042? Thanks.

    I would bill for it, but I think it will likely be bundled into 12042.
