Hello, I understand that if you are billing for drug waste, that CMS clearly states that you need to document the exact dosage of the drug injected and exact amount and reason for waste. My question is, if you are NOT billing for the waste is there still a requirement to document for it? Any references would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

From what I have read, if you are billing to Medicare - as of 1/1/17 they REQUIRE the drug waste to be billed. If another carrier, then you would have to check with that particular carrier.
