New CPT codes for iron injections

Article

There is a new, specific code to use when primary care physicians administer an injection of iron.

Q: I have used CPT code 90772 for the injection of Fe (iron) in a patient with Fe deficiency anemia. I was told recently that this code has expired. Is there a new, specific code?

The American Medical Association clarified administration codes in December 2008 by breaking down the infusion/injection (administration) services into three categories: hydration (96360 and 96361); therapeutic, prophylactic, and diagnostic injections and infusions (96365–96379); and chemotherapy and other highly complex drug or highly complex biologic agent (96401–96549).
