Many ID practices provide outpatient antimicrobial infusion therapies to patients with serious infections. While these therapies are typically provided in the office-based setting, home infusion therapies are a viable option for most privately insured patients and for Medicare patients with supplemental insurance. The following resources explain the coding and payment rules for outpatient infusion therapies as well as IDSA's advocacy in support of Medicare coverage of home infusion therapies.

IDSA supports legislation that would guarantee Medicare beneficiaries access to intravenous antibiotics provided in the home setting.
