Each medically necessary injection can be billed separately, regardless of whether the injection is subsequent, or not for a new drug.
The exception to this rule is the single preparation of the sub-Q or IM dose that exceeds the volume safely injected at a single site. When the volume of an injected dose requires it to be split into two or more syringes, you may bill only a single unit of service for 96372.
For example, if you administer two separate drugs, but use three injections to administer them, you would report two injections (96372, 96372-59 Distinct procedural service, and the drug supply codes).
