    Default Allergy Drops Sublingual
    Medical Coding Books
    We are giving a patient 2 allergy drops sublinqual. We do not mix the drops here, we are just administering. I am questioning if we should use 95117, even though this is not an injection, or should we use 95199, unlisted?
    Thanks!

    The word parenteral means not through the alimentary canal and the mouth is part of the canal so I would not use 95117. I would use the unlisted.
