Home Infusion Management Billing

Liz Posted Thu 13th of November, 2014 17:11:06 PM

I am billing for a new provider who is managing a patients infusion "picc-line". The patient comes in and the Dr checks, cleans, etc. the infusion line. The Dr is saying that she should be getting paid for more than just the high level office visit. I can not find anything to code for just managing it. I only see codes for inserting. Is there another code for this?

Thanks for your patience. After a great deal of research, there is no documentation available to support separate physician billing for cleaning, checking, or management of infusion lines. The best option would be to bill an office visit. Make sure that the physician is documenting all of their work in the note for the office visit. Hope this helps.
