Chemotherapy and Catheters


Best answers
Our facility will be billing for Folfox regime of chemotherapy, and does anyone know if catheter placement is separately billable to Medicare? We will be billing for the Folfox regime using the following codes:
Pre hydration of IV fluide 1st hour 96360
Chemo Infusion 1st hour 96413
Chemo Infusion each add'tnal hour 96411
Initiation of prolonged chemo infusion via pump 96416
Re-filling of ambulatory pump for continuous infusion of chemo 96521

Can we code for the intro of the catheter? Thanks for any input or insight.
