Infusion-codes 96365, 96367 and 96360

Luz Posted Thu 12th of November, 2015 11:37:59 AM

first, I want thank you for your continued support with all my inquiries. Here is my question; it is possible to bill for non-chemo infusion 96365 and 96367 and hydration therapy 96360 on the same day. For instance, if we provide several medications, and between medications provide hydration for 30 minutes at a time for a total of 1.5 hours, can we also bill for the hydration by time?

No Hydration will not go with infusion: According to guidelines only one primary code will go in infusion, injection and hydration.

When fluids are used solely to administer drugs or other substances, the process is considered incidental hydration and should not be billed.

Thanks
