Oxygen given during Chemotherapy

  1. Default Oxygen given during Chemotherapy
    Medical Coding Books
    If a patient is receiving chemotherapy in an office setting and has a reaction, chemo is stopped and oxygen admininstered (eg. 2L per nasal cannula), is the oxygen separately billable or is it included in the chemo visit.

    I found a previous post regarding oxygen/chemo but the MLN talks about renting or dispensing or filling oxygen equipment and doesnt really answer this question. can you help?

    did you ever detemine if the oxygen is billable? I have the same circumstances happen in our office this week and not sure if/how we can bill or if it is covered in the facility charge. Thanks,
