Hi -

With the new code for BCG instillations beginning 7/1/19, am I correct in assuming that if a patient gets a half dose, it would be reported as J9031 0.5 units? Does anyone know if CMS is good with this?

You can't report a HCPCS code with a fraction of a unit. Guidelines are that fractional units of drugs should be rounded up to the next whole number.

So did everyone figure out that the new BCG code is J9030? Does this have 50mg per vial? And does anyone use the JW modifier?
