Thread: pharmacy J codes

    Default pharmacy J codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    I work in a hospital where I input charges into the Charge Master.
    I have a drug to enter that is Paricalcitol 5mcg. In the HCPCS level 11 book there is a J code for J2501 for Paricalcitol per unit of 1 mcg. How do I adjust the code to reflect the 5mcg. The system does not allow for qty of 5.

    In general how does one code for drugs that have a higher quantity that is listed in the HCPCS level 11 book.

    All responses greatly apprecitated.
