    Question drug Fluorouracil

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm working in Billing and Coding company and I've a question regarding a chemotherapy drug Fluorouracil 5-Fu (6x)which was given to a patient but 40 mg was wasted . How to code the wastage along with the used drug.

    Default 5fu

    This will depend on the size vial used. You will have to confirm charting of the waste and then bill for the whole vial.
