Since many people are asking questions regarding codes for this and that, I wanted to start a separate discussion.
I work in an acute care facility that has an outpatient infusion center. They are looking at lack of codes, currect codes, etc. to accurately capture billing for services.
Midline - we have found no code. Would you use CPT 36410 which describes a venipuncture; soft flexible cathteter for the use of blood draw or infusions?
There is a code for Home Infusion - all supplies including catheter for a midline insertion S5521. And then a Home Infusion - insertion of a midline catheter (nursing services only) S5523.
So why is there no code for areas outside of the home? This doesn't make sense to me.
Biopatch - HCPCS A6209 describes a foam dressing?
Stat-lock - HCPCS A5200 describes a percutaneous catheter anchoring device?
Central line dressing change - no CPT code (? 375012 SIM code)
Appreciate any assistance with verification regarding these codes. Anyone with coding/clinical experience.
