Wiki New Chemotherapy & Complex drugs codes


Best answers
As I read the 2009 CPT-4 book for codes 96413-96417, I believe that I am interpreting IV push medications are included in this code.

Could someone verify if that is the intent of these new codes.

Thank You

for the IV push 96409 and 96411 you have to charge the 96411 x how many
pushes if you give the chemo iv infusion first that is how I read it
Thank you for your response. I may not have worded my question quite accurately. When you read the "includes" portion under the Intravenous Infusion heading, there is a list and intravenous/intra-arterial push is reported.

This is where I am trying to determine whether this service is now considered part of the Infusion package.

Thanks again.
