    Default IV Iron infusion in the office

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need some guidance. We are investigating doing Ferrlicet infusion in the office setting for nephro and hem/onc. Can someone help me with the correct codes?

    J2916 Sodium Ferric Gluconate Complex 12.5 Mg - aka brand name Ferrlecit. You'd likely be using a Therapeutic infusion code such as 96365 to administer the drug.

    I would urge you to read the carrier policy for specific coverage indications and limitations, they are generally very restrictive. The FDA approved indication is as a first line treatment of iron deficiency anemia in patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis who are receiving supplemental erythropoietin therapy.

    Hope that helps.
