Administration code for shots
« on: November 09, 2010, 12:15:14 PM »
Hello,
Please bare with me, as I am new to billing and know to use 90471 and 90472 with immunizations.  however, we use several other meds as well, such as Cefitiaxone, Dexamethasone, Promethazine, Ketaloric, Lidocaine and Methylprednisone.  Do I use the same administration codes to bill with these as well, or is there a different code.  The last biller told me to use 96372, but this code is coming back as a procedure that cannot be billed with an office visit.  Any help you could give is greatly appreciated!  Thank you,
Mel

The OV is usuall included in the 96372 but a modifier on the e/m can be used if documentation supprots it.  Please consult with your in house coder for documentaion review
