    Exclamation Lupron Injections

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know when billing Lupron injections (J9217) for 3 month periods. Does it matter if it's 3 months to the day? Also does it just go by 3 months, or does it go by a specific number of days?? One of our doctors wants to know ASAP. And I can't seem to find anything on the specifics of that. If someone could let me know. Or let me know where to look I would be greatful. Thank you.

    Default Lupron

    The package insert for Lupron 22.5mg states "given once every three months (84 days)". Our office schedules accordingly.

    Default lUPRON

    Does anyone know the correct way to bill out the Lupron 22.5mg? The J9217 is 7.5mg so do I bill on three seperate line or on one line and change the units to 3?

    we do ours by units. If the pt is on a 3 month, then we bill the J9217 x 3 units.
