    Default ESRD with Aranesp

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello everyone,
    I am trying to find information about what to do with a patient who is ESRD, not on dialysis and coming in to our Nephrology office for Aranesp injections. Our data entry system is telling me I cannot charge the J0881/EC with a 585.6. I am still looking for information on CMS website. If anyone has any experience or can point me to an answer I would greatly appreciate it.

    Default aranesp

    Doesn't j0881 read non-ESRD use? Call your supplier for the drug- they may be able to direct you.

    Try using 285.21 as your primary diagnosis.
