IV Hydration Codes 96360 and 96361

    Default IV Hydration Codes 96360 and 96361
    Medical Coding Books
    Our Chemo nurses frequently provide hydration services to patients that may have the hydration due to issues other than volume depletion, dehydration, or hypovolemia. This is hydration that is not within a normal chemo protocol or regimen. Does Medicare state that hydration cannot be billed with codes other than those I've listed?

    Default hydration
    These are the hydration codes to use. Medical necessity, MD order and possible distinct servcie (59) may assist in getting addtional payments.

  3. Default 96360 payable ICD 9cm codes if any particular

    Hi Seniors,

    Is there any Payable icd codes list for IV push Infusion codes 96360 and is the modifier 59 essential for billing this service? Please suggest me the right way to code.
