Thread: IV Push Scenario

  1. #1

    Talking IV Push Scenario

    AAPC: Back to School
    0930 Morphine IVP
    0930 Phenergan IVP
    1410 Morphine IVP
    1410 Phenergan IVP

    We have two different medications administered thru IV at the same time X2.
    There is no hydration involved so the initial IVP for the Morphine @ 0930 would be 96374.
    Can I code 96375 for the Phenergan administered at the same time? Or does the 30 minute rule apply?

    Needing opinions on how you would report the scenario above.

    Default Ivp

    I look at the wording that states, "single or initial substance/drug" for 96374. There are no guidelines to indicate a time rule would apply here. I would code the add on with the "additional sequential intravenous push of a new substance/drug" 96375 for the Phenergan.
