Coding for injections and infusion services is not only complex, it’s downright frustrating. Add this to the thousands and thousands of dollars in drug costs that can be lost if you code these claims incorrectly, and the stakes just shot through the roof. However, there is something you can do about it.
With a few proven techniques from national coding expert, Victoria M. Hernandez - RHIA, CDIP, CCS, CCS-P, AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS, you can reduce denials and get paid more for your injection and infusion claims.
During her immediately available online training session, Victoria will walk you through how to file more accurate injection and infusion claims, and ultimately collect more of the reimbursement you rightfully deserve.
Here are just a few of the infusion and injection coding tactics you’ll receive during this 60-minute online training:
- Assign codes for hydration and infusion of multiple drugs accurately every time
- Get paid for more of the supportive drugs you administer with this little-known tactic
- Capture the highest allowable reimbursement with quick “initial” and “subsequent” admin code tip
- Cut through the confusion of assigning infusion HCPCS drug codes
- Use readily available resources to capture optimal drug administration reimbursement

- Uncover included and excluded services to maximize pay-up and reduce denials
- Incorporate proven start and stop time documentation methods that your docs will really use
- And so much more…
Coding for injection and infusion services can send even the most seasoned coder over the edge. Between the required code hierarchy, the multitude of interchangeable add-on codes, and drugs being injected and infused along with the units administered, it’s surprising anything gets paid. Not to mention the fact that the infusion codes you use have multiple meanings and can make getting paid accurately almost impossible.
You don’t have to tackle these tricky codes on your own. By attending this upcoming online training, you can gain the tools you need to code your injection and infusion claims more accurately, reduce your denials and get paid with total accuracy for these complex services.
If you submit even one injection or infusion claim, this upcoming online training is a must. Don’t wait, sign up today.
