Thank you for your question.
J7799: Noc drugs, other than inhalation drugs, administered through dme
Noc- Not Otherwise Classified; these are drugs that are not listed/coded in the HCPCS book. They are typically new drugs that have not been given HCPCS codes as of yet. These could apply to any drug not listed/classified that are NOT inhalation drugs as J7799 states.
The drugs for J7799 are also administered through DME. DME stands for Durable Medical Equipment (such as a pump).
