a)“If performed to facilitate the infusion or injection, the following services are included and are not reported separately:

i)“Use of local anesthesia

ii)“IV start

iii)“Access to indwelling IV, subcutaneous catheter or port

iv)“Flush at conclusion of infusion

v)“Standard tubing, syringes and supplies.”
