Thread: Administration Of Injection billing

  1. #1

    Default Administration Of Injection billing

    AAPC: Back to School
    A physician's office has billed for the administration of DTAP vaccine. This comes in a premixed prefilled syringe. The billing department billed this as three seperate toxins which charged for three seperate administration fees. Even though the nurse/physician did no mixing, and only administrated one injection. Is this accurate?

    No, I would only bill 1 injection administration charge for a single premixed prefilled DTap vaccine given one time and use the DTap combination code to capture the vaccine charge.
    I would not unbundled the DTap charge nor would I incorrectly bill insurance for 3 injection charges when vaccine was only administered once.
