I need to verify coding for hydroxyprogesterone for preterm labor. I did find code Q2042, but it was only effective from July 2011 through the end of the year. My new HCPCS book refers me to J1725 but specifies this for Makena. Because this is a compounded drug, would I still use J3490?

thanks for your help!
