Yes. We add a 59 modifier to the 96368 as insurance companies bundle it into the chem-infusion codes.
As long as the times overlap the times that the chemo is given, and the route is different than the chemo - meaning the drug is going into a different hole into the patient. This is a concurrent infusion. Usually you will see it documented similarly like this.
5FU 12:00pm start 14:15pm stop (96413, 96415)
Leucovorin 12:00pm start 14:15pm stop (96368, 96366)
If either infusion ran to 14:31, then an additional hour could be added 96415 w. chemo, 96366 for the Leucovorin.
Hope that helps.
