Thread: Injection Administration Question

    Default Injection Administration Question

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have several patients who come into one of the offices I work for who get B-12 injections. They pay for the actual medicine because they do not have pernicious anemia. I was wondering if we can still charge the administration fee for the injection since our LVN is giving the medicine.

    Yes you can charge the administration fee since you are administering the injection itself.

    Hope this helps!

    Yes I agree you can and should charge the admin code.

    I felt like that was correct, but I wanted to double check.
