Question What code for Rhogam injection?

For our pregnant patients receiving a 300 mcg injection of Rhogam, should we bill J2790 or 90384? What is the difference?

Thanks!

Check with the insurance carrier. The only difference is which one the insurance carrier prefers to use.

Our office uses 90772 with J2790 along with 656.13 and V07.2 We have had no problems getting paid.

We use both together, because we found that some commercials were not paying either when billed by itself.

Here is North Carolina, Medicaid will not pay the 90384, but they will pay the
J2790. By definition they are exactly the same. All other carriers accept and pay the 90384.

Hope that helps!!
