    Default transfusion w/hydration

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is hydration (96360,96361) billable with a blood transfusion(36430)?
    I just read a RAC article on-line about it.

    I haven't read the RAC article you are referring to, but, as far as I know you cannot charge hydration with a blood transfusion. The hydration is included in the transfusion charge.
