Red face TORADOL J1885 Help!

I know the hcpchs book shows one code for J1885 15 mg, when billing for Toradol J1885 60 mg, do you charge per mg or is it one fee weather you give 15mg or 60mg. Please help!


Thank You in advance

MsMaddy

Hi,

If the superbill is marked with 60mg you should bill 15X4(4 units)

Thanks

Default Toradol 60mg Help!

When billing for 60mg of Toradol your quantity should be 4. As the HCPC code indicates it is for 15mg.
