    AAPC: Back to School
    Our billing company keeps rejecting 90772. We are billing 90772 Therapeutic inj. with J3420. They state 90772 is no longer valid. What other code is there for administration of B12 injection?
    Thanks for your help.

    Default What's your place of service?

    2008 CPT Professional Edition, page 383 ... under the guidelines for Hydration, Therapeutic, Prophylactic and Diagnostic Injections and Infusions: "... These codes are not intended to be reported by the physician in the facility setting."

    Our clinics are all hospital clinics (POS 22), so we can no longer bill these codes, even when the physician him/herself is performing the injection.

    Not only at what place of service is the B12 injection being administered, yet also what other services are being billed with the J3420 and 90772?

    Of course for 2009, we'll have to use 96372 and not 90772.
