    Cool local anesthesia

    Is there a code for local anesthesia or is the anesthesia bundled in the procedure? For example if a patient comes into the physician's office and requiresn 3 stitches to close a cut. How would this procedure be coded?

    I have literally driven myself crazy trying to figure this one out. HELP

    If you try to bill as 12001 and 96372 for the injection of lidocaine. 96372 would be bundled under the edit such as standards of medical/surgical practice. Other references could be found stating it is inclusive to performing the procedure.
