The Ins and Outs of Injection and Infusion Coding

April 12, 2022
60 Mins
Lynn M. Anderanin

Injections and infusions can be diagnostic, prophylactic, or therapeutic treatment for many different conditions and diseases, but the reimbursement can be challenging as not only are there CPT® codes for the administration of the treatment, but also codes for the medication given. Improper coding of injections and infusions can have a negative effect on a practice by causing revenue losses. This webinar will ensure attendees that they are not only properly coding and reporting these services, but also taking the next step in making sure their company is offering them at a profit rather than a loss.

Webinar Objectives

Proper coding and reporting of infusions and injections starts at having accurate and complete documentation of the services and procedures performed, along with medication information, and in many circumstances, the time involved in the treatment of the patient.  Understanding the type of injection or infusion as well as the reason for the treatment will be needed for choosing the proper codes both from a CPT® as well as ICD-10 and HCPCS perspective. Our expert speaker will look at many case examples to ensure that the attendees have valuable information on the ins and outs of this coding. We will also assist in identifying the proper coding sections of CPT® codes to be used based on the type of injection or infusion. In addition, we will discuss what to do when multiple forms of treatment are performed for the same patient on the same day.
