    Default 96372 - Is anyone having any problems
    Medical Coding Books
    Is anyone having any problems with this new code? In all my coding information it states not to use 99211 with medication injections. What has changed? Is there a link explaining the CPT changes for 2009? Thanks.

    actually, nothing has changed regarding the use of the administration code except the code number. The "old"code 90772 states:
    >Physicians do not report 90772 for injections given without direct physician supervision. To reort, use 99211. Hospitals may report 90772 when the physician is not present<
    The "new" code 96372 states:
    >Physicians do not report 96372 for injections given without direct physician supervision. To reort, use 99211. Hospitals may report 96372 when the physician is not present<

    so, the "rule" remains the same...no change.
