    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there any good resource to understand how drugs should be billed (HCPCS, NDC#, units of HCPCS codes, units of NDC#)? Example Depo Medrol 40 mg is administered 10 mL. The vial (Pkt) size is 50 mL.

    Any inputs will be greatly appreicated!!!

    Well, since you asked for ANY input, here's some research links I use: http://www.palmettogba.com/palmetto/...splay?OpenForm AND http://www.rxlist.com/script/main/hp.asp

    I had difficulty in finding caffeine sodium benzoate and the latter site gave me the information I needed. ---Suzanne E. Byrum, CPC
