1 unit is 1 MG so:

J1602 139 Units (round up due to fractional units not accepted)
J1602-JW 11 units (150 - 139 = 11)

You wouldn't want to round up the discarded otherwise you will be over billing by 1 unit.

The instructions that I see from CMS don't really address fractional units, other than cases where the HCPCS Unit size would cause over-billing
