    code 93568. My Doc did 4 seperate hand injections. In Incoder Pro it says that add on codes 93567 and 93568 are not subject to multiple procedure rules. I take it that I may bill for the # of times he does this injection during the procedure. I'm billing it in addition to the cath code 93451. Am I correct to be able to bill this code multiple times?

    The number of injections needed to perform a supravalvular aortography (93567) or pulmonary angiography (93568) is irrelevant, the procedure(s) is (are) coded once along with the appropriate primary catheterization code.

    "Do not submit individual injection codes 93462-93464 or 93563-93568 more than once per patient encounter". Zhealth Publishiing Cardiovascular Coding Reference 2011.
