Depending on the ICD-9 code book you are using there is a section in the front of the book that covers how to code neoplasms. Primary, secondary and history a malignant neoplasms. I believe it is the 140 or 149 area. For the CPT side you must be familiar with the hydration, chemo and non chemo infusion area. Always code chemo admin first, followed by chemo push, then non chemo iv, non chemo push, hydration, injections. Push is 15 mins or less. Hyrdration can only be billed if no drugs were being administered during the hydration. For example hydration started at 1000 and ended at 1035. Cisplatin Started at 1036 and ended at 1115. You would bill 96413 the cisplatin then 96361. Hope this helps..the guidelines in the CPT are very useful.
