    Default Oral administration of a theraputic drug

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know what CPT code I would use for the administration of a theraputic drug given orally? It is a melt-away tablet given on the tongue. Thank you!!

    We can only bill an appropriate E/M if we are billing the pro-fee part of it.
