you cannot charge a 99211 just for vital signs when the patient comes in for a scheduled B12 injection. The taking of the vitals is part of the administration of the injection and is therefore part of the reimbursement for the 96372. You may not use a CPT code when a different CPT is the one that describes the service. So 96372 describe and injection administration encounter so that is what you must charge.
