What is the HCPCS J code for sodium chloride administered through an IV? We found J2912 but this is an injection code and it was deleted in 2006. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Sodium chloride the same thing as normal saline... look at the codes for normal saline based on the amount infused, J7030, J7050, etc.

Oh yeah, she's right. I googled it, but must have read too fast. I looked again and Normal saline is sodium chloride mixed with water. Sorry about that!

If infusion of just sodium chloride, I guess you'll have to use the unlisted code. I searched and searched and there is no longer a code for that.
