Thread: "test" injection prior to allergy injection

  1. #1

    Default "test" injection prior to allergy injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    Scenerio: New vial is mixed, patient comes in for 1st injection from a new vial. Patient is given a small amount of the injection, watched for reaction and then the complete injection is given if there is no reaction. Can the office bill for the "test" injection with 95024 AND 95115 for the remainder?

    It sounds like what you are referring to is a skin wheel? after our patients vials are mixed the patient comes in for a skin wheel. we bill out the injection code 95115.
