Those are not the only codes that should or can be billed with hydration codes. There are many reasons why hydration therapy are medically necessary, for example in our oncology clinic we prehydrate patients prior to using certain chemotherapys and that is covered with code V58.11 or V58.12
If a patient is vomitting and/or has diarrhea but not yet dehydrated, we use those diagnosis codes and give fluids. Hope this helps you, somewhat.
