    If the doctor gave the injection, you also bill the administration - 96372. Hope that helps!

    If the medication came from your stock you bill 96372 and J1080. If the medication was ordered you only bill 96372.

    My office does frequent self inj teaching for testosterone. We bill and E/M plus the medication. Is there a code for the teaching since we cant bill for the inj since the pt is physically doing this themselves? I have been looking into 98960. Is this correct?
