    I'm not sure why you'd be charging an office visit for a nurse visit injection only? It's my understanding that if it's a nurse visit for an injection/vaccination only - then that's all that would be coded and billed (drug and adminstration of it). (Or perhaps your nurses document enough information unrelated to the injection being given that it supports a 99211?) That being said, I agree with racheleporter; I don't think they can be billed together, I think the 99406 needs the .25 modifier on it and bill/code out the drug and adminstration of it.
