    Default Leucovorin HELP

    AAPC: Back to School
    How to bill Leuco if it's given with an inital chemo drug or a sequential chemo drug.

    Oxaliplatin 10-12 96413
    Leucovorin 10-12 ?

    Avastin 96413
    Decadron 96367
    Oxaliplatin 96415
    Lecovorin ??

    I was told that if Leuco is given with a sequential chemo it should be coded as a sequential 96367 and + one additional 96366. if it's witht he initial chemo drug (96413) it would then be a concurrent 96368. HELP

    For the scenario you have provided I would code a 96413 & 96415 for the Oxaliplatin and a 96368 for the Leucovorin. Because the Leucovorin was run concurrently, you would code as such, but you can only bill for 1 concurrent hour of infusion. I hope this helps. You are definitely moving in the right direction. =0) Good luck!

    I agree. I would bill the LCV as 96368.
