Thread: Dextrose in an IV

  1. #11


    AAPC: Back to School
    CPT also defines an intravenous push (IVP) as an injection in which the healthcare professional who administers the drug is continuously present to administer the drug and observe the patient. For coding purposes using the MAR and or nurses' notes, I've only used the the 15 minute or less guideline to code IVPs.

    Yes, therapeutic infusions require more than 15 minutes of infusion time. If infusion time is 15 minutes or less use the IVP codes, 96374 if the service is single or initial. 96375 and 96376 are IVP add on codes.

    Hydration infusions have different time requirements.
