Joint inj within global of surgery

I am having a blonde moment. Can I bill for a rt knee injection done within the global of a right knee scope and menisectomy?

    It would depend on what the dx is (a new diagnosis),but generally if it is for pain relief, then no. Pain management is part of the global package.
