    Can I bill for both on the same visit? Pt was in the office for 3 hours, E/M 99215, IV infusion 90780 x 1and 90760 x 2, 99354 x 1 and 99356 x 4?

    The time spent on the infusion can NOT be also used to justify prolonged services. You are already being paid for that time when you code the infusion.

    Hope that helps.
