Hello Ron and welcome to the forums!

IVIg/SCIg and related infusion treatments (Rituximab, etc.) are normally covered under Part B. Perhaps your provider is using the incorrect CPT billing codes; or, you are having IVIg through home infusions, which aren’t normally covered under Part B? The typical CPT codes used are 99601 and 99602.
