We have an infusion nurse that infuses Remicade and gives injections of Entyvio and Cimzia. Most of our Cimzia patients bring pre-filled
syringe but need to be taught how to self inject. The nurse has been using the 98960 (Education and training for patient self-management)
Now these claims submitted to private carriers with 98960 are all being denied as non-covered, Medicare has not covered this code ever.
My questions is can our nurse bill the 99211 for education/training for the self injections. If we can use the 99211 what would be the elements that would have to be documented to support 99211.of Thank you for advise
