    Default Nursing Service Depo Injection Advice

    AAPC: Back to School
    When a patient comes in for her depo injection I am currently coding a 96372 and J1055. Is this correct?

    I thought that if a doc gives standing orders for things such as Depo,B-12 (with pernicious anemia), allergies ect... and the nurse is taking vitals/weight/etc that you could also charge a nurse visit......is that incorrect?
