I have a patient that came in for viral hepatitis vaccine. Can we charge a 99211, 90471 and 90633?

Thanks,
Sharon

Yes, we do bill for nurse visits/injections...

99211, 90633, 90471....We do paid. Also was audit by an insurance company and was informed that it was correct billing.....

That really surprises me, I agree with Melissa, why would you charge a nurse visit on top of the administration fee!

What insurance did the audit...

It is inappropriate to bill a 99211 for an injection visit. Unless they are documenting a separate problem unrelated to the injection it is included in the administration charge.

Thanks Rhonda,
I did verify this info and ALL 5 pt's charts had seperate problem unrelated to the injection.

I will make sure that this is not being abused.....
