I did some reseach in reference to your wonder about the correct way to code these services. I found this website with some great information. This is what they provided:
96413 Chemotherapy administration, intravenous infusion technique, up to one hour, single or initial substance/drug
(Report 90761 to identify hydration if administered as a secondary or subsequent service in association with 96413 through the same IV access)
(Report 90766, 90767 to identify therapeutic, prophylactic, or diagnostic drug
infusion or injection, if administered as a secondary or subsequent service in
association with 96413 through the same IV access)
Found at: http://www.emedny.org/ProviderManual...es%20Sect3.pdf (On page 19)
Since this is your line of work, you are probably more familiar with these codes and understanding their usage. However, as a new coder I must say that your question has caused me to research the fine details of chemotherapy. This quest has helped me greatly-thanks!
