If you bill that injection with a 99211 it will bundle with the injection. In Medicare Part B issue 260 it states, " If the sole purpose of a visit to the physician's office is to draw blook or receive an injection, then 99211 should not be billed and only the appropriate injection or blood drawing code should be billed.
There are two pages of clarification about when to bill 99211.
But I know your nurse cannot bill anything but 99211 no matter how long her education runs. We have the same scenario in our infusion room. The nurses educate about chemo and that is all we can bill.....till we get our NP.
