Thread: Normal Saline Billing

    Default Normal Saline Billing

    AAPC: Back to School
    If normal saline is ran for 45 minutes as protocol on every patient before a particular chemo drug in order to prevent organ damage, is that considered incident to the chemo drug or is it bill separately with 96361?
