    AAPC: Back to School
    Two situations:

    1 - A Cisplatin one- hour infusion combined in a single bag with mannitol and magnesium.
    Is the correct code 96413?

    2 - A one-hour Cisplatin infusion at 10 am. A separate therapeutic one-hour mannitol and magnesium sulfate infusion at 11am. The correct administrative codes are 96413 and 96367?

    3 - the mannitol and magnesium sulfate are therapeutic not hydration?

    Thank you for your assistance with this coding.

    You are correct on both scenarios

    Yes, the mannitol/magnesium is considered therapeutic.

    Have a great day!
