Thread: Allergic reaction to CT Contrast

  1. #1

    Default Allergic reaction to CT Contrast

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello all, we just started doing CT scans. If a patient has adverse reaction to the IV contrast and we administer Solumedrol, what codes do I bill? We normally bill the 72193 for the CT and then we bill Q9967 for the contrast. Do you know where I can find documentation on this? Thank you for your help.

    Are you just looking for the HCPCS code? If so then you would bill J2920 for up to 40mg of Solu-Medrol or J2930 for up to 125mg (41mg-125mg). If you're asking if you can charge for both the contrast & Solu-Medrol...it has an ASC pymt indicator of N1 stating that it's a packaged/service item with no sep pymt.....not sure what POS you're billing for so I cannot tell you a definite answer.
