Venom Doses - Urgent

  1. Unhappy Venom Doses - Urgent
    Medical Coding Books
    If a patient is going to receive the following can you tell me how to bill for it. I have read everything and i am thoroughly confused.

    1- vial of wasp - will receive 6 doses
    1 - vial of honey bee - will receive 6 doses
    1 - vial of (yellow jacket, hornet, white hornet) - will receive 6 doses.

    Do you bill 95147x18
    95145 x 6
    95145 x 6
    95145 x 6
    A couple of medicare policies state "us a code below the venom treatment number only for "catch up" purposes.
    I would be most grateful if I someone could help. Barbara
