Hydration with chemotherapy

  1. Question Hydration with chemotherapy
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a question about hydration given with chemotherapy. The fluids ordered were Normal Saline with KCl and magnesium Sulfate. Would this be coded as hydration (96361) or since there are meds added to the fluid would it be coded as an infusion (96367)

    We code that as hydration... 96361.
