Need suggestion....

  1. Default Need suggestion....

    Can anybody suggest me that 90772 and J0735 can be billed together.

    90772 states subcutaneous or intramuscular administration of injection but clonidine as an injection given into a specific part of spinal column (epidural space).

    I think these two codes can not be billed together.

    Any suggestions !!!

    so, is there a different procedure code being used? (like from the 644xx area or another CPT area - 62310, etc...) - if so, you wouldn't be using the 90772 code.
    {that's my opinion on the posted matter}

  4. Default Only two CPTs
    Hi Donna,

    There are are only two cpts

    90772 and J0735

    ICD is 338.3 and written in red mark that Can we bill J code & 90772 for this patient.

    This is a super bill for family medicine

    prem, after reviewing J0735 - I don't see where it states that it's for "an injection given into a specific part of spinal column (epidural space) only".
    So I'm thinking that yes they can code both together (J0735/90772)

    what makes you say that J0735 is for spinal column only?

    thanks -

  6. Default Epidural administration.
    Hi Donna,

    As per my knowledge clonidine can be administered as tablets for High BP and as well as injection for pains and as patches.

    The ICD given was 338.3 neoplasm related pain.
    It is used in combination with opiates for epidural use for relief of cancer pain.

    90772 states subcutaneous or intramuscular administration.

    Please let me know if I am wrong.

    I agree with Donna. It sounds like you should be using a procedure code such as 62310 or 62311 with J0734. 90772 wouldn't be for an epidural.

    J0735 is an injection that can be given via 90772. Like I suggested, research the drug. It is used for many different problems.
