Why Should You Attend?

Hospitals, outpatient facilities, and medical offices all used these codes to report the services involved with infusions and injections.  In order to choose the appropriate codes, there are several elements that have to be documented in order to capture all of the services.  This includes the amount time in which each drug is given, and circumstances when multiple drugs are given at the same time.  Missing any of the services rendered can be lost revenue.  It is also critical that the drugs given are reported with the proper HCPCS codes and dosage.  Many of these drugs can be expensive and the profit margin it little.
