36000

What I can tell you is that I bill it for IV infusion therapy (hydration, therapeutic, and chemo-therapeutic). However, Medicare bundled this code with the infusion codes as included/incidental to the infusion codes effective 1/1/12. I continue to bill it for infusion to all other carriers. Don't think that answered your question, but maybe helped a little.
