In our office we give allergy injections. Patients bring in their serum from their allergists (or we receive them by mail). There seems to be a discrepancy over how to bill for this service. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks. Sarah Counterman, CPC

We are a family practice office. We bill CPT 95115 for one injection and if two are given, we bill CPT 95117. We use ICD-9 code V07.1.

Hope this helps!

We use CPT codes 95115 for a single injection. If two injections were given, we use 95117. We use the ICD-9 dx code of V07.1. We try to be a specific as possible with our dx. For example, if the patient came in for an allergy injection because of hay fever, we use the dx code for hay fever instead of V07.1. Hope this helps.:)

Serum Charge

How do you bill for the serum? In our office we do the allergy panel testing and then we order the serum from the company and charge it to our company acct. How do I recoup these monies? :confused:
