Drug administration coding doesn't need to be difficult.
Drug administration is one of the most common services provided in the outpatient setting, and while the rules and codes have not changed significantly since 2009, coders still have questions about how to apply the CPT® guidelines and follow CMS' guidance.
This handbook begins with a review of drug administration concepts, including definitions of common terms. It then walks through the hierarchy that outpatient facility coders use to select the initial drug administration service. The handbook also explains how to properly determine when to report concurrent, subsequent, and additional hours of substances and when to report hydration.
Included are 15 case examples of varying complexity for coders to test their understanding of drug administration principles. The correct coding for each example is provided, along with explanations highlighting key code assignment concepts. The handbook concludes with some frequently asked questions about drug administration.
