Thread: J1642 units

    Default J1642 units

    AAPC: Back to School
    Each bottle with the ndc# 00074-1152-78 contains 500 units.
    So how many units of J1642 must be used if the entire bottle of 500 units is given to the patient.

    J1642 is a per 10 unit code. So if all 500 units were given you would bill out J1642 with 50 units.
