Thread: Billing for hydration

  1. #1

    Default Billing for hydration

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is hydration, prior to and following a CT with contrast, billable or integral to the radioogy procedure?

    Also, where might we find the "rule" regarding IV hydration prior to and subsequent to a CT with contrast?

    Default Hydration

    I'm most familiar with out patient infusions, chemo, home infusion, ect., but generally Hydration is only covered separately IF for "dehydration" as a separate and identifiable service.
