Endogenous testosterone production

An evaluation and management (E/M) service (99201-99215 with modifier -25), a therapeutic injection (96372), and injectable testosterone (J1060, J1070, J1080, J3120, J3130, J3140, or J3150) codes are typically billed for each visit. Provider may bill for CPT codes 84402 and 84403 for free and total testosterone testing. CPT 85014 is billed for Hematocrit testing . However, an office visit that is not significant and separately identifiable should not be reported separately. Improper use of modifier 25 will bring you under the scrutiny and payer audits. Usually diagnosis code ICD-9 (other testicular dysfunction) is reported. However, that may vary on the basis of the payer’s medical necessity criteria.

Benzodiazepines may influence neurosteroid metabolism by virtue of their actions on translocator protein (TSPO; "peripheral benzodiazepine receptor"). [59] The pharmacological actions of benzodiazepines at the GABA A receptor are similar to those of neurosteroids . Factors which affect the ability of individual benzodiazepines to alter neurosteroid levels may depend upon whether the individual benzodiazepine drug interacts with TSPO. Some benzodiazepines may also inhibit neurosteroidogenic enzymes reducing neurosteroid synthesis. [60]
