Report code 90765 for first hour, code 90766 for additional hours of IV infusion

APCs Insider, February 15, 2008

QUESTION: We have a designated observation unit where we treat patients with IV infusion (i.e., therapeutic drugs) overnight. How should we report an infusion of therapeutic medication that starts at 11 p.m. and ends the next day at 11 a.m.? Does the daily initial service rule apply in this scenario?
