  1. Default charge for administering injections

    Can someone tell me if we can charge for administering an injection? Not the charge for the injection, but for the nurse who is administering.
    Thank You

    that would be the injection admin code, like 96372 depending upon whether this is a therapeutic/prophlactic or is it a vaccine for 90471

    Do you mean the injection code and a 99211? If that is the question then no, you can't bill a nurse visit and the procedure.
