I work with various hospital outpatient departments that bill for initiation of prolonged chemotherapy infusions using CPT 96416. At present, a few of these hospitals are experiencing denials of CPT 96416 when reported alone. In the past, the 96416 was not a "sequenced" code. Does anyone have any clarification of how 96416 should be handled (sequenced or not sequenced with the Chemo/Infusion hierarchy)? If possible, would like the reference used to determine the use of the code vs. what has been successfully used (without a reference). Thanks in advance!
