Hello: In my experience, and doing a lot of research on this topic, (as my hospital did not want to charge separately for contrast) since contrast is a substance/drug infused into the body, it must be charged seperately to document it.
Here's some research I did previously- various links and may be blood products, devices, etc. in there too. Even if it's not a separately reimbursed item, I believe it has to be on the bill.
