Zingo is a powder intradermal injection system and the correlating NDC is 70645-123-26. Can a physicians office with a dispensing license have the ability to bill the NDC for the Zingo product? If so, outside of work comp what data boards are showing this as a registered product? When I look at www.medilexicon.com it shows Zingo as a product that has been FDA approved with studies attached.

Zingo is brand name of Lidocaine Hydrochloride which is used as anesthesia. Billing of Lidocaine Hydrochloride or Zingo depends upon insurance and payers. Some insurance/payers pay for it. Most of the insurance/payers do not pay when it's used for local anesthetic purposes.
Local anesthesia is inclusive in all procedural CPT's packages and is not a billable service for Medicare or most private insurance.
