DepoProvera injection

  1. Default DepoProvera injection
    Medical Coding Books
    When giving a DepoProvera injection we bill for the actual drug and do we use administration code for immunization or therapeutic injection. This was given at the time of an annual examination. Please advise.

    Thanks.

    96374 is for IV push you may have meant 96372

    I believe the most appropriate CPT for the administration would be
    96372 -therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic injection; subcutaneous or intramuscular.
