    I will go out on a limb here, but this is how we do it in my practices....you would report
    J0696 and in the units box, enter the units as a fractional unit. If you can't use a fraction because of the EMR limitations, I think you could add modifier 52 to the J code. I would suggest you consult with your payer.

    This is my opinion here. Would anyone else report this differently?
