    Look at 94644 and 94645. For ten hours, you'd bill 94644 and 94645x9, plus J code for the Albuterol. I can't give you the exact J code for the Albuterol without knowing if it's compounded, non-compounded, unit dose or concentrated. The codes for those are J7610-J7613, and you'd post 10 units because they're all billed per mg.

    Thanks Pam. I was confused by the notes wording of infusion and new bag as if the nebulization had infusion somehow.
