Injection of Demerol and Phenergan

  1. Default Injection of Demerol and Phenergan
    Exam Training Packages
    A pt receives 50mg of demerol and 25mg of phenergan. I know that HCPC code J2175 would be used for the demerol and J2550 would be used for the phenergan. My question is would the units need to be adjusted since the explanation of both of these codes are "up to" a certain amount?

    Thanks!!

    You would report one unit of each.
