    Exam Training Packages
    Billing for Indiana WC~ firefighter at the scene of house fire~ a barrel outside was found burning meth lab at the time she experienced throat pain irriation and coughing also increased heart rate. Firefighter declined ER treatment came to our office 3 days later.

    When we treated her no symptoms~we did chest xrays, labs and dispensed 5 vials of Albuteral Solution(she has the machine at home)

    My questions is how do i bill dispensing of Albuteral vials with the NDC code or use the J code I think the ndc code

    also the dx code i'm using are:
    987.9 Effect Toxic Specified Gas, Fumes, Vapors Other
    V87.2 Exposure Chemicals
    E980.3 Exposure to Methamphetamine
