Thread: Accessing a vein..ONLY

    Default Accessing a vein..ONLY

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a patient comes to the hospital outpatient infusion center to ONLY have their vein accessed ( patient is having a scan w/ contrast )how do you bill for that?
    I cant use 36415- venipuncture b/c that is for venous blood collection.
    E&M's are not billed in this center, only treatment codes.

    Same scenario getting access from the port?

    suggestions are much appreciated..thanks
