Anytime your office provides the drug for a service or procedure, the J code for the drug is coded. One exception is if the drug was at no cost to the practice (ie drug rep sample or pt brings in the drug).
The physician must document the drug and dose in his order. The dose administered must be documented as each J code is based on a specified dose. The # of units billed are based on this defined dose. The nurse can include the lot # in her documentation
