I am not sure if this helps at all but I attended a Medicare seminar a couple of months ago and had asked the speakers a similar question. We have a patient that receives procrit injections weekly and had been told by their reps that we were to always use 99211 to bill for these visits but that didn't seem accurate. I asked the speakers their opinion and they didn't really give me a straightforward answer until a doctor that happened to be attending the seminar as well stood up and said as long as it is documented that the pt. was there for XX minutes and had no reaction to the medication-the 99211 would be appropriate. The speakers agreed. However, this does not mean that every payer agrees. We all know how that goes.
