    Unhappy Sandostatin LAR

    AAPC: Back to School
    When administering Sandostatin LAR would it be appropriate to use the chemo hormonal injection administration code or just the therapeutic injection administration code? Has anyone had this issue?

    No. You should use the Therapuetic Injection code 96372 as Sandostatin, code J2353, is not classified as an Anti-Neoplastic drug.
