    Default Administration injection codes?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All,
    If a provider administers Depo-testosterone AND Vit.B12 can I use only 96372 for both or is there any additional Adm.Code after initial 96372?
    Pls.help and thanks..

    Happy New Year to All....

    You just need to enter a Qty of 2 with the 96372. Each shot gets their own admin. and there is no "first" and "each additional" like with vaccines.
    Hope that answers your question.

    While I agree with Susan that units may work, I would report 96372 twice and append modifier 59 to the second administration.

    Default STD patient- injections

    How should I code a STD patient (clinic) receiving Rocephin or Lidocaine or both with administration code? I am thinking the administration code(cpt 96372) is the correct code with Rocephin or Lidocaine? Help please.
