    Default Help with J Code - UHC keeps denying a claim
    Medical Coding Books
    UHC keeps denying a claim for Verapamil. My boss has me using J3490 Unclassified Drugs. Is there a better code or does anyone have any suggestions. We have also sent in a paper claim with a written description. Thanks for any help.

    There is no HCPC code for this so J3490 would be appropriate. Make sure you list the NDC number on the claim form also.
