Intravenous injection (as sole procedure)
Inactivate
Approved
Bupa are currently seeing low volumes of the above code and are considering inactivating it in-house. Our additional rationale (other than low volumes) from our Medical Director is as follows: The only time we can envisage the need to fund this would be in the context of an emergency (eg a member collapses in waiting room/consulting room) - otherwise it would be part of some other procedure (administration of chemo, anaesthesia etc).
