Hydration may be billed separately only if it is given prior to or subsequent to drug infusion. If it is given concurrently to facilitate drug delivery, it is considered included in the drug infusion. If hydration is less than 30 minutes then it is not billable and the reson is that if it is less than that then it is not therapeutic and cannot be dehydration.
