    Patient diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease received an injection of ceftriaxone intramuscularly during her visit. Should I use 90471 or 96372 or another code for the injection of the medicine? Thanks!

    Ceftriaxone is an antibiotic so you use 96372 for the administration. 90471 is for vaccines.
