    Question More Hydration Confusion

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a question abot how to figure out time for hydration correctly.
    Ive been told that at 90 mionutes, you can charge one initial and one additional, is this correct? So then, at 120 to 150 minutes can you charge
    another additional, and 180-210 and so on?

    Hi Pat,
    I beleive the 90760 is the first 31minutes to 1 hour. Then you would report the 90761 in conjunction with the 90760 for infusion greater than 30 minutes beyond 1 hour increments.
    Hope this helps.
