Thread: Ketamine Infusion

    Exclamation Ketamine Infusion

    AAPC: CPC Promo
    Any ideas on how to code this one? We have a doctor doing these infusions for chronic pain patients - the drug is infused over several hours.

    I'm looking at the codes for Infusion 96365, 96366 but can't find a code for the drug! Anyone?

    Maybe consider 62318.

    From what I have read in Commerical carriers Medical policies there is not a code for Ketamine infusion and it is not FDA approved. The policies list J3490.
