IV Infusion - Patient receives

    IV infusion Question

    Patient receives IV hydration with sodium bicarbonate to protect the kidney in a chronic renal disease patient pre-cath lab procedure for 4 hours total. We used 3 x 50 ml vials for the infusion.

    Would we code 96365 x 1 and 96366x 3 along with the J93490 x 3?

    Additionally or alone if the patient is given an IV infusion of 25,000u of heparin mixed in 1000cc of NS to infuse for 5 hours can we bill 96365 x 1 and 96366 x 4 and also code the heparin J1644 x 25? This doesn't look correct?

    My question is do you bill for the infusion and medication? The J codes state injection? If it's an infusion not an injection do you still use the J codes listed above?

    sorry very new at this.
