    Default Lovenox Injections

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a new physician that wants to start giving Lovenox injections in the office prior to and after the patient has a procedure. Does anyone know the appropriate way to code for these injections? The nurse will be administering the injections each day for 5 days prior and 5 days after the procedure.
    Any help will be much appreciated.
    Thank you,

    Unless the patient has a condition that warrents this then you will need a V code for prophylactic administration plus the 96372 for the admin.
