Avastin unit

Daniel y Posted Tue 18th of October, 2016 15:57:31 PM
Hello, I've been billing J9035 with 1 unit and one of our doctor told me, his hospital billed Avastin with 5unit. We are using 5mg. Would you please let me know which is correct? Thank you.

Hi,

AVASTIN is supplied in 100 mg and 400 mg preservative- free, single-use vials to deliver 4 mL or 16 mL of AVASTIN (25 mg/mL).

Appropriate billing for 5 mg AVASTIN administration would be J9035 with one unit as the code itself states: Injection, bevacizumab, 10 mg.
