    Cool S9558 ??

    AAPC: Back to School

    Can anybody help me with HCPCS S9558 and tell me what kind of DME/Service this is. Is this an IV infusion equipment set or an injectable set? I'm being told that this is an IV fusion set when in the code description it states that it's a "Home injectable therapy". And also what sorts of service is done for this code to be billed? I'm working on a case where the patient is on hormone therapy injections. As it seems, he's being billed per day with S9558 according to how long his medications last. So for instance, he injects himself .2 cc's per day and there's 6 cc in one kit. He picks up 2 kits which as 12 cc's. The provider billed 12 units of the drug J2941 (INJECTION SOMATROPIN 1 MG) and 60 units of S9558 because the medications are to last 60 days.

    Any thoughts?
