My urologist does vasectomies in the office and he uses Fortaz (ceftazidime) 500mg mixed with sterile water to rinse the vas when he is done. The medicine is expensive so I was wondering if anyone had an idea on how to bill for this. Anything I have read says this is used as an injection only.

Even though it isn't being injected, you can still bill for the medication used during the procedure.
