67 or 68

  1. Default 67 or 68
    Medical Coding Books
    A patient gets infusion with grug X from 12 to 3.
    from 2-3 he gets an additional drug Y infusion.

    How should I code it ? as seq. or concurrent infusion?

  2. #2
    Concurrent since the infusions were administered via the same site and at the same time during 2-3.

  3. Default I think the same but...
    Its really not clear how to interpret the sequential / concurrent per cpt.

    To my understanding sequential is when the firs drug therapy is done and a second drug begins. but per cpt it can be a "secondary service after a different initial" and its not clear if the first drug can still be administrated with additional drug.

    As to conccurent - Maybe all grugs needs to be addminisrated together at the same time?
    (drug A+B+C different bugs from 1-5)

    Can someone clarify it please?
