How would we bill the concurrent IV administration of one chemotherapy drug and one non-chemotherapy when the drugs are given with separate bags at the same site?
The chemotherapy infusion would be reported with the appropriate code from the 9641X series of codes. The concurrent administration of the non-chemotherapy drug (i.e., Leucovorin, Mesna) would be reported with code 96368.
