Injection of Marcaine into Muscle/Skin

Injection of Marcaine into Muscle/Skin

March 1, 2018

My neurosurgeon always injects Marcaine into the muscle and skin incision prior to closure after spine procedures.  Can I bill this with a nerve block or trigger point code?

This is a method to help with post-operative pain control and is not separately billable by the surgeon.
