Lidocaine Injection for pain

  1. Default Lidocaine Injection for pain
    Exam Training Packages
    How do I bill for a Lidocaine injection not associated with a procedure? The
    physician gave a subcutaneous Lidocaine injection for suboccipital pain. Do I use
    96372 for therapeutic injection? Also, the only HCPCS code I can find for Lidocaine is J2001
    and that's for intravenous infusion. Are we allowed to bill separately or is the injection
    part of the E/M?

    Lidocaine no longer has a HCPCS code for injection. It is now considered included if it is administered in the course of an E/M encounter.
