Thread: Testosterone 300 mg

  1. #1

    Question Testosterone 300 mg

    Hi Everyone...

    One of my providers is administering 300 mg of testosterone to a patient & since the two HCPCS that are assigned to the administration (neither of which is for over 200mg) do you combine J1080 & J1070
    My concern is that J1070 is "up to 100mg" so that is really inappropriate to use it as an additional code...

    I would use V1070 100mg with 3 units of service

    I just had a problem with my testosterone injections being denied by Medicare and was told by Medicare to round up and not use decimals. I use 96372 with J1080 and since it is 300 I would round up to 2 in the quantity area. I hope that is what you wanted.
