    Default Need help!! Oxygen Therapy billing questions

    AAPC: Back to School
    I code for Hematology/Oncology infusions services, and I was just asked, by a nurse, if we can bill for administering oxygen to patients that are seen during thier visit. Would this service be billable? I have looked all over and can't find any information on Oxygen therapy billing.

    I have always understood that the oxygen itself is billable as a supply item but not the administration of. This is from the outpatient hospital side.

    Sorry, but I do not have a CMS regulation that I can quote. I'm just going by my past experiences.

    Appears you cannot bill for the administration on the private practice side either, just the supply (HCPCS codes)
