Requested opinion on correct infusion code to report for administration of DHE (dihydroergotamine). Provider is currently reporting chemotherapy administration, IV infusion 96413/96415. It is the provider's opinion DHE falls into the heading of "other highly complex drug".

Dhe

I use 96374 and J1110. I looked up your code in the 2012 CPT and asked my doctor's opinion (in case he wanted me to start using your code) and he felt it is not a highly complex drug. That being said he did mention there are certain side effects, but would not use that code. He uses it for some Migraine patients, if that makes a difference.

Just our opinion:)
