I have the SAME question 5+ years later!!
The patient presented with severe emesis. The records indicate normal saline solution (NSS) 2 liters was given IV. IV start time: 10:40 & end time: 12:40. Rx Zofran was given IV at 10:50. There is only a start time for the Zofran. No end time.
I'm thinking the following codes/units should be reported:
CPT 96374 (Initial service for IV push of Zofran)
CPT 96361 x 2 units (Subsequent hydration for 2hrs).
I'd appreciate any feedback on this. Coding IV hydration/infusions is confusing!
