    Post Billing for Observation and chemotherapy on same DOS...Can we bill both?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can we bill for both oberservation (any observation cpt code) and chemotherapy administration (cpt code 96450) for same date of service?

    Any feedback is very much appreciated!

    Yes, as long as you could prove that they were 2 separately identifiable services. It would be like billing an office visit w/ chemo. Just be sure documentation supports coding and put a -25 mod on observation E/M.
