Resources
« on: May 08, 2013, 03:31:32 PM »
I have a new client that has been using outdated procedure codes. For instance, the one they were using to bill steroid injections is incorrect. Well.... I am not a coder and I have no idea. I am trying to update their superbill and I am thinking I need to get some coding books. I see know they have online resources as well. Anyone have any advice/suggestions on what they use regularly for these types on things in the billing capacity.


AND.... is the injection and the drug coded together under 1 code??? :'(

No.  Administration of injection is one code.  There is a separate code for what you pushed into the person with the injection.  You need a CPT Handbook.  Google on that phrase and you will find lots of offerings.
