For those that do drug code injections, help would be appreciated. I cannot figure out how to equate this drug into the correct reporting needed for billing. Could you please help me.
J0171 - Injection, adrenalin, epinephrine 0.1mg (NDC 00548-9061-00)
Dr. did the following: injected a total of about 4.5 cc's of xylocaine with epinephrine into the left side of scalp. I'm assuming I'd use the 20553 CPT code? It was for occiputal neuritis.
If the Dr. gave a total of 4.5 cc, then how would that calculate out?
