I code for an er and when a bag of premixed hydration fluid is hung..example: ns with 40 kcl. I charge hydration...CPt even says that it premixed are hydration fluids. An auditor told me that I should have coded for IV medication infusion ( a big dollar difference at my facility). What do you guys think?

I also code for the ER and we would use the hydration code for a premixed solution.
