    Can a nurse administer a depo J1050 and use 96372 for reimbursement? Or does it have to be an NP, PA or Dr? Thanks

    Is the physician or NP on site at the time of the injection, and was this ordered at a previous encounter? Also check your state nursing laws as to the limitation on RNs and LPNs, barring any state objections an RN may administer IM injections in a physician office while the provider is on site.

    In regards to the IM question of 96372. As long as the Depo was "ordered" by a Dr., PA. or NP. then the answer is Yes, the nurse can administer the injection and charge for the IM injection.
