    Is anyone billing for Xopenex when used in the office setting. Administered by nebulizer. If so, which HCPC's are you billing with for the 1.25mg and the .63mg?

    Question Xopenex
    Can anyone tell me if J7614 would be appropriate for physician office use? This seems to be the only code that fits, but what about the mg. The code says for 0.5 mg are we going to have multiple units?? Example 1.25mg = 25 units?

    J7614 looks right, but I think your unit dose would be 3 if you are giving 1.25mg (0.5 x 3 = 1.5 but you need to use whole units).
