Coding for Depo-Provera

 

Question: What are the CPT and ICD-9 codes for billing Depo-Provera injections for birth control?

Answer: According to coding expert Emily Hill, report 90772 (therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic injection — specify substance or drug; subcutaneous or intramuscular) for the administration of the medication. Report the medication (Depo-Provera) in addition to the administration code using HCPCS Level II code J1051 or J1055. The specific code depends on the dosage given.
