RhoGAM injections: payment levels vary among insurers
Physicians often send their patients to our hospital for RhoGAM shots. Why is this happening, and what is the best way to code for this service?
First, many Ob/Gyns opt not to perform RhoGAM injections in their offices because of exceedingly poor reimbursement from third-party payers. Second, there was a shortage of the product in 1995 and early 1996. In many cases, RhoGAM was available only through local hospitals, so a shift in the site of service took place.
