Why Should You Attend:
CPT and CMS both have routinely made changes to the coding and rules for infusions and injections.
In this session, we will review the latest guidelines CPT offers related to codes based on time, which will apply to the infusion codes. We will also review the most commonly reported injections and when to properly report them.
CMS has a wealth of information on their website that can assist you in receiving the proper reimbursement for, sometimes very expensive, drugs. There will be a thorough review of the files available from CMS that include NDC codes, the average sales pricing, and pricing for drugs not assigned HCPCS codes yet, but reimbursed under unlisted code. The FDA website will also be referenced for approval information, which is critical, because insurance carriers will not normally reimburse for drugs that are not FDA approved.

Any infusion in the office, whether it be therapeutic, diagnostic, prophylactic, or chemotherapy, can be costly to the practice if not all billable services are reported. The CPT codes for infusions allow you to report an administration code for each drug or treatment performed in some way, as well as the drugs administered.
What about when an injection is administered instead of an infusion? There is a wide assortment of injections that can be found in many different sections of the CPT manual, including injections of joints, vaccines, pain management, and radiology procedures. HCPCS codes are utilized to report most of the drugs that are administered by methods other than orally, but you will find vaccines toxoids listed in the CPT manual.
