Thread: ORAL dexamethasone sodium phosphate

    Default ORAL dexamethasone sodium phosphate

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of our docs gives a liquid dexamethasone sodium phosphate orally to pts. The HCPCS for injection, dexamethasone sodiums phosphate is J1100. Is it appropriate to use this HCPCS code when given orally, since I cannot seem to find an oral administration. If not, what code do you recommend?

    Thank you so much for your help!!
