    AAPC: Back to School
    Is anyone having trouble with the Epoetin labs J0885 and J2916? Primarily with MCR.
    Please let me know it would be a great help.
    You can also email me at charetts@ummhc.org

    What kind of problems are you having?? We give Procrit injections in our office daily & use J0885. We have no problems with Medicare. We do need to use modifier EC with the J0885 code with medicare patients. The diagnosis codes we use are 285.21 & 585.X, in that order.
    Hope this helps!

    Epoetin/Procrit is a drug, not a lab, perhaps that might be one of the misunderstandings that is creating a problem with getting reimbursement. Describe how the billing is being done and what problems and perhaps may be able to assist.
