Does anyone have an experience billing for this service? I have a physician that is wanting to start doing it and just wanted some advice on coding/payment issues etc.

Looks like some commercial insurances still consider this drug experimental:

Aetna
PacficSource

If we use HCPCS J2315, then my coding assistant show a Medicare Payment Allowance, however that doesn't mean it's always payable. I would check with the patient's carrier before billing out this code.
