Since Avastin is a chemo drug, you would bill the 96413 for the initial hour of chemo infusion. The Zometa, as a subsequent drug would require a 96367. You can only bill one initial admin code per day. IF you are charging Avastin and another chemo drug, you need to charge a 96413 for the initial chemo infusion hour, then a 96417 for the subsequent drug's chemo infusion admission. The CPT manual breaks down all the admin codes and how they should be used. A good trick of the trade to rememeber is that chemo infusion drugs are all J9xxx. Good luck!
