Thread: Leucovorin and Oxaliplatin

    Default Leucovorin and Oxaliplatin

    AAPC: Back to School
    Normally our office gives Leucovorin and Oxaliplatin concurrently. I have a question regarding the correct administration codes to use. We give concurrently for two hours:

    Currently we bill: 96413 & 96415 ---chemo admin
    J9263 Oxaliplatin
    96368 ---non-chemo admin
    J0640 Leucovorin

    My question is can we also bill 96366 for the additional hour of non chemo administration since it is also given over a two hour period.

    (these are in seperate bags)

    Thank you

    Wink Concurrent infusion

    Hi Dee,

    I miss coding chemo infusions...but...if I remember correctly, coding a concurrent infusion is a one-shot-deal. While you are capturing the total 2 hours of the chemo drug (initial admin. 96413 and subsequent hour 96415), I believe you will only charge the concurrent code of 96368 just once and that will encompass both the initial hour and the subsequent hour.

    Hope this helps.
