Hello! Any office billing for Iron Deficiency anemia Injectafer Infusion - J1439 750 units with 96365 (therapeutic infusion)--Do you know if 99415 is appropriate to add for billing clinical MA time to monitor. (45 minutes total)? Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Clinical Examples

I agree with the reasoning that infusion administration codes include monitoring especially since the code instruction for 99415 states that "time spent performing separately reported services other than the E/M service is not counted toward the prolonged services time." However, why then do the clinical examples in CPT indicate IV hydration services is a good example for reporting this code?
