J0280 - Aminophylline, up to 250 mg

  1. Default J0280 - Aminophylline, up to 250 mg
    Exam Training Packages
    I have a question on how to bill the J0280. Our nuc tech used it and used only 50mg, but of course had to waste the remainder of the vial. Do I bill this per mg or for the entire 250mg with a note of the amount wasted? Does anyone know, I looked at the Medicare website but could not find info on how to bill, just amount reimbursed.

    Thanks for your help!

  2. Default J0280 units?
    Did anyone answer on this. We used 25mcg, what is the units?

    1 unit for everything up to 250MG (which is a single vial of 10ml w/ 25mg/ml)

    No billing would be done for the remainder of the vial thrown out because that would cause over-payment if the waste was billed on a separate line.
