Thread: IV Therapy

    Default IV Therapy

    AAPC: Back to School

    Can someone help me with IV hydrations and infusion coding.
    If patient was given 2 liters of normal saline and then IVPB Pepcid 20 mg over 30 minutes, what would be the code for the IVPB. He also had 4 mg of Zofran pushed into the NS.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Really need more specific information. Was the Zofran added to the NS? Do you have a start and stop time for the NS and a rate? With the information given I would code 96365 for the Pepcid since it was given over 15 min, it is considered a therapy and then 96375 for the Zofran. If you have a start/stop time and rate other than KVO or maintenance for the NS I would code 96361 for the length of time it was running.
