Eleen Posted Mon 06th of August, 2018 11:58:35 AM
What CPT is most appropriate for Baclofen injection? Procedure: Injected baclofen today after discussion. 100 units split as 3 doses into the left thigh adductors. Injected 100 units split as 3 doses total into the left peroneus brevis, tibialis anterior and peroneus longus. Thank you in advance.

You can report 96372 {Therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic injection (specify substance or drug); subcutaneous or intramuscular} for each individual injection because your provider administered the medication to three distinct sites. If the provider performed all the injections for the same reason (that is, linked to the same diagnosis code), report the injections as a single line item with three units of service.

Make sure your documentation supports the medical necessity and check the payer policy to justify that injections for left peroneus brevis, tibialis anterior and peroneus longus are distinct site.
