    Default Dacogen
    Medical Coding Books

    We were discussing this in out department today. Should dacogen be billed as a chemo drug or a non chemo drug when it comes to the infusion? We have seen it paid both ways, but I thought it was billed as non-chemo.


    edit: my apologies, per the ngs site, it is billed as a chemo drug for mcar part b.
