Hi Everyone,

How do you code for administration of KCL, Pottasium ? (DX Hyponatremia) Is it considered as hydration ( 96360) or Infusion drug (96365)

Thank you

My opinion is that since KCL is a drug, I would use the 96365 code. I would also refer back to the order and see how its written. Hope this helps!

Potassium replacement aka a K-rider is a therapeutic infusion. Many facilities add 10mEq KCL in 100 ml NS and infuse over an hour.
