Coding/Billing infusion drugs with 2 NDC#'s.


Plant City, FL
Best answers
Occasionally when I am coding the infusions in our office the drug will be pulled from 2 vials with different NDC#'s. When entering the information for billing there is only room for 1 NDC.
Below is an example:


40ml comes from - 63323-0212-20 Oxaliplatin 5 mg/mL 20 mL SDV PF APP 1 Each
1.8ml comes from - 63323-0750-10 Oxaliplatin 5mg/mL 10mL (50 mg SDV) APP

I was told to use the first NDC but add the ML, but that doesn't seem right to me.
Example: J9263 NDC: 63323-0212-20 41.8 ML

I thought perhaps I could report the J code twice with the ml from each vial:
Example: J9263 NDC:63323-0212-20 40ML
J9263 NDC:63323-0750-10 1.8ML

The girls in billing feel that this will get rejected due to duplicate billing.

Any ideas??
