    ACTH stimulation test

    Is it infused for more than 15 min? We see this quite a bit, and I have known this to be given as an IV PUSH. If so, then 96374 is the correct code for the administration of the cosyntropin. The hydration is given only to support the cosyn iv admin, it isn't billable.

    Infusion + shots

    You will need to put a 59 modifier on the other 2 96372 codes. The LT and RT modifier are not needed with 96372.

    It depends on the drugs given and the route of administration. Do you have an example?

    Question Adriamycin

    If it is ordered as a push, you would still code it as a push. We were told by the nursing staff that they manually push this drug and that sometimes it does go over 15 min, but it is considered a push. Hope that helps :)

    Hi, The chemotherapy would be 96413, 96415. Was the hydration given to "keep vein open"? Hello, The chemotherapy would be 96413, 96415. Was the hydration given to "keep vein open"? If so, you wouldn't bill for this.
