Charging for an infusion when the patient leaves

  1. Default Charging for an infusion when the patient leaves
    Medical Coding Books
    This patient had IV hydration running for exactly 30mins (according to nurse's note) prior to being transferred to higher level of care at another facility. Can I charge for 96360 since NS was still infusing when pt left, even though it wasn't 31+ minutes?

  2. Default
    no, it has to be documented 31 minutes or more based on the start and stop time given.
