Administration of injections

  1. #1
    Default Administration of injections
    Medical Coding Books
    Patient comes in with own methotrexate due to ulcerative colitis and wants injection administered.

    Which would be correct:

    556.9 96372


    556.9 J9250 AND CHARGE $0.00

    Any suggestions? Thanks for your help. Ann

    I always charge the 96372 alone when a patient brings in their own meds. I don't know if your program has the option but I add a note into the financial charge to state that patient brought in own medication and we injected it.
