IV coding

Kathy Posted Sun 27th of July, 2014 15:16:47 PM

How would the following be coded: IV started @ 17:41, Toradol 1 mL IV @ 17:41, Zofran 2 mL IV @ 17:41, IV d/c'd @ 18:41?

You should use the intravenous push codes 96374-96375.

96374 for initial Toradol IV push and 96375 for Zofran sequential IV push.

96374 represents 'Therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic injection (specify substance or drug); intravenous push, single or initial substance/drug'.

96375 represents 'Therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic injection (specify substance or drug); each additional sequential intravenous push of a new substance/drug (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure)'.

Thanks !!
