I have a ? my facility is having trouble finding info on adding hydration times. In our ER this happens alot. Here is an example:
So between 1357 stop time of zofran and the 1630 start time of dilaudid is 2hr33min of just hydration. After the dilaudid is finished there is 38min of hydration. can these be added to gether to get 90761x3 or should it be 90761x2 not adding that last 38min of hydration?
Can anyone help me figure this out. If patient presents for IV infusion for total of 3 hrs and also had one medication pushed in the IV, what is the correct sequence of codes to use? Thanks for any help
Taking a stab at this - assuming the infusion was for hydration:
90760, 90761 x2, 90775 (for the IV push).
? Should you have used the 90774?Thats what I thought but the 90775 denied because it was not a part of primary procedure.
Lisa, what would be your complete code(s)?The 90774 is an initial code. To get a push paid after an infusion has begun/is coded, you need to use subsequent. "Report 90775 to identify intravenous push of a new substance/drug if provided as a secondary or subsequent service after a different initial service is administered through the same IV access."
We administer chemo in an outpatient setting. We would bill as follows:Can anyone help me figure this out. If patient presents for IV infusion for total of 3 hrs and also had one medication pushed in the IV, what is the correct sequence of codes to use? Thanks for any help
What is the IV infusions are two different drugs running concurrently for 2 hours and another chemo push ?We administer chemo in an outpatient setting. We would bill as follows:
Chemo as primary 96413 x 1 hr, 96415 x 2 hr additional, if the push was a chemo drug we would use 96411. If the push is not a chemo drug then you use 96375. Hydration can be given during chemo for dehyrdation 276.51 starting at 31 mins. to 60 mins. 96361 or if they only receive hydration that day, 96360 for 31-60 mins and 96361 for 91 mins or more. Does this make sense? Hope if helps.
