Payment Allowance Limits for Medicare Part B Not Otherwise Classified (NOC) Drugs
Effective January 1, 2011 through March 31, 2011
Note 1: Payment allowance limits subject to the ASP methodology are based on 3Q10 ASP data.
Note 2: Providers should contact their local Medicare contractor processing the claim for the most appropriate unlisted/unclassified HCPCS code to use in reporting these drugs to Medicare.
Note 3: The absence or presence of a HCPCS code and the payment allowance limits in this table does not indicate Medicare coverage of the drug.
Similarly, the inclusion of a payment allowance limit within a specific column does not indicate Medicare coverage of the drug in that specific category.
These determinations shall be made by the local Medicare contractor processing the claim.
Claims submitted to Medicare Part B for Not Otherwise Classified (NOC) Drugs (e.g., J3490 - J9999) MUST contain the NAME of the drug administered and dosage on the 1500 form in box 19 or for EMC claims, it must be submitted in the comment field. Per Medicare Claims Processing Manual, Chapter 26 - Completing and Processing, Form CMS-1500 Data Set, the NDC number for an unlisted drug is not enough information to correctly price your claim.
The NDC number for an unlisted drug is not enough information to correctly price your claim.
Claims submitted without the name of the drug and dosage will deny with the message â€śMissing/incomplete/invalid name, strength, or dosage of the drug furnished.â€ť
