J0695 (Zerbaxa) - How many units to Bill

Oscar Posted Wed 17th of January, 2018 11:54:11 AM
Hi Supercoder team Can someone help me about how many units to bill for J0695 (Zerbaxa) drug. We are giving this drug 1.5mg, so trying to bill 1500 units, but seems not correct. Please suggest.

As per the presented documentation, we are assuming that Zerbaxa 1.5 gram was administered on the date of service.



As per the HCPCS code description, injection, ceftolozane 50 mg and tazobactam 25 mg.



Unit Calculations are as below:


Ceftolozane 50 mg and Tazobactam 25 mg = 75 mg = 1 unit of Zerbaxa.


Total administration was 1.5 gram; i.e., 75 mg X 20 unit = 1500 mg.


  • Converting 1500 mg into gram(s) = 1.5 grams



Therefore, you can bill for 20 units for HCPCS code J0695.
