CPT Drug Administration Codes

For Office-Administered Drug Administration

Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes are five-character codes used by healthcare professionals to classify medical procedures and services performed on a patient. In ‘Buy and Bill’ drug billing, CPT codes identify the procedure used to administer a certain medication. The CPT code will depend upon the type of drug and administration method. The intravenous infusion of a certain medication, for example, would have a different CPT code from the intravitreal administration of another medication. CPT Codes should be included on the CMS 1500 claim form in Box 24D.
