You can't bill a 96416 and a 96521 in the same session. A 96416 should be billed when a patient comes in and has a pump initiated for let's say 7 days with 5FU; then the patient comes back into the office after the 7 days and gets the pump refilled with more 5FU then you would bill a 96521. The pump was never disconnected between the two visits therefore you cannot bill another initiation. I work for a Hem/Onc practice and we bill for these pumps all the time. I hope this clarifies it for you.
