    If reporting this code for the compouded form of Albuterol that is mixed with another medication, would you also report the J code for other med that was mixed with it? It already comes compounded. Thanks.

    So you would bill J7609 for the albuterol used when administered with the nebulizer treatment?

    Per the CPT guidelines, you are to report the correct code (HCPCS or 99070) for the inhalation solution used with a nebulizer treatment. There are some payers to my understanding that do not reimburse for it, but the coding guidelines direct you to report the medication used.
