    Can you bill Iv Hep Lock or Infusion along with a venipucture?

    Default Er Iv.....

    I was under the assumption that when there is an infusion you cannot charge for a venipuncture or hep loc. You charge for the infusion and supplies. You can charge for a venipuncture if a blood culture is taken. If a patient only receives a IV push you can charge for a hep/lock.
