Hi All,

So here is the scenario.... Patient is seen in Rheumatology dept. for Hep B vaccine. Patient has a adverse reaction and Diphenhydramine 25mg is administered Intramuscular. Hydrocortisone 100mg is also administered via infusion. Can I charge 96372 for the Diphenhydramine injection and a IV Push admin (96374) for the hydrocortisone ,in addition to the admin charge for the Hep B vaccine?

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

This document is from 2013, but here's the link anyway: https://education.aaaai.org/sites/e...es/icd_10_coding_plenary_saturday_july_20.pdf

It looks like you'd good to go on those codes. You'd probably have to make sure to identify them to an intractable allergic reaction DX to make sure you prove medical necessity.
