96372 and 99212-99213

I have two questions. I just started in a Nephrology practice and Dialysis practice. Anyways, I have came across that they used to bill the administration of Procrit as 99212 and the Medicine. Can you really do that? I thought the 96372 already includes the E/M service and the administration.
My second question is. If a patient comes to his appointment to get the iron shot (96372) but then starts talking about his knee hurting (for example) and the physician talks to him about that and looks at it, can I bill 99212 -25 and 96372 with the medicine? Thank you so much!
