Product Description

Infusions without Confusions! Demystify Infusion Coding With These Expert Tips for Cleaner Claims

The AMA had made several changes to the Infusion therapy section of CPT over the years but there is still a lot of confusion when reporting these codes.  There are initial codes for a session, and then add on codes to represent many different scenarios for administering different drugs, subsequently or concurrently.  

Moreover, there is a hierarchy that tells in what order these administration codes should be reported in the office.  Reporting the drugs administered correctly is also critical because of the high cost of many of these drugs to the physician in supplying the drugs.

Get a general understanding of the infusion codes and the appropriate assigning of these codes with our expert Lynn M. Anderanin.  There will be an Infusion Administration Table that will simplify this coding.  Our expert will also reference free information on the web related to drug coding and pricing.

Here are a few topics covered in the session:

  • CPT coding for the initial hour of infusion during a session
  • When to assign subsequent and concurrent codes for additional time
  • Hydration therapy performed before or after other infusions
  • How to report drugs that have not been assigned HCPCS codes
  • CMS files related to drugs
  • FDA website references for drug approval information
  • Know all about Push Technique CPT codes
  • Learn from Chemotherapy example
  • FDA approval of a drug is necessary in order to be reimbursed by insurance carriers

Who should attend? Physicians, coders, administrators, auditors, coders, nurses in the specialties of rheumatology and clinical oncology, or any other specialty performing infusions in the office.
