Ketamine Therapy

Kristene Posted Fri 02nd of March, 2012 18:50:45 PM

Wondering if anyone can provide me with coding/billing information on Ketamine therapy as a treatment (in office) for suicide risk patients and if this is a covered service?

Thanks for your time!

It is one of those items that is part of the supply provided by the physician or facility. There is not a drug code in HCPCS for it and it is a short acting, non-narcotic anesthetic agent. The cost to supply it is included in the fee for the procedure.
