    Default J7613 question

    AAPC: Back to School
    We are adding albuterol and neb treatments to our services. My question is on the dosage. If we use one tube, at 2.5 mg, is that one "unit dose". The code states 1mg. Sorry, but I'm confused. thanks.

    Default same question

    Hi Lori,
    I have the same or similar question. I believe they mean that 1 mg is one unit, but then how many units is 2.5 mg? It seems safe to bill 2 because you did give 2 mg, but it would be nice to code the exact dosage. From what I see in other posts it sounds like people are only getting paid for the neb treatment and not the drugs. We have not been coding the drugs so far, just the neb treatments.

    One thing I forgot to mention, there is also a code J7620, in case that fits your situation: Albuterol, up to 2. 5 mg and ipratropium bromide, up to 0. 5 mg, fda-approved final product, non-compounded, administered through dme
