    How is everyone billing out. Rocephin 1 gram.
    Because the only Rocephin HCPCS code I see is J0696 AND THAT IS FOR 250MG.

    Seeking some guidance. On what coders are using, when there physician only injects a gram of Rocephin.

    Thank You

    P.S- I know you bill first the 90772, just need the HCPCS code for Rocephin 1gram.

    Hi Daniel,

    We bill J0696 with units of four. Hope this helps you.

    Have a great day!

    Thank you so much, you cleared up this for me beautifully.
    Quick side note, funny thing about coding. You can over look the simplest things dealing with coding. If you over think things. Looking at your response. I thought to myself. DUH. I should of know that.

    thank you
