Can we charge for a PO medication (antibiotic pill)given to the patient here in the office before a procedure? This is on the same day. Example: Cipro given to patient prior to cysto in the office. This is medication that our office has purchased. It is NOT SAMPLES given to us by a pharmaceutical company. Thank you for your help.

No, you may not charge PO medication given before a procedure. It is considered as included in the reimbursement of procedure.
