Patient had a pain pump refill with only Dilaudid, Sodium Chloride and Sterile Water. Insurance denied for no authorization. This was billed under the unlisted "J" code for the pump refill. The authorization person in the office is stating this should be billed using J1170 for the Dilaudid only.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
