Thread: Ferrlecit Infusion

    Question Ferrlecit Infusion

    AAPC: Back to School
    I've been checking all the codes/charges for an IV Iron administration done in the hospital as an outpatient procedure. I think I've almost got it, but I think I'm still missing one code.

    The pt comes in with a dx of iron def anemia and receivs 250mg of Ferrlecit via IV. Here's the codes I'm using:

    280.9 -DX
    J2916 x 20 - Iron
    99.29 - Administration Vol 3 code
    96365 - Administration cpt
    96366 - Additional hour
    J7050 -Normal Saline
    S1015- IV extension set
    ____ - IV Primary set
    99234 - Observation admit, D/C same day

    Is the primary IV set (push) bundled in? If it isn't, what is the HCPC code? Thanks!
