New C-Code and D-Code for EXPAREL
Starting January 1, 2019
C9290: For procedures performed in ASCs
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has reinstated a unique, product-specific billing code, or C-code (C9290), for EXPAREL.
D9613: For dental procedures
In addition, a separate D-code —D9613— defined as the infiltration of sustained-release therapeutic drug (single or multiple sites) was established, which will allow for reimbursement of EXPAREL in oral surgery procedures.
