JW is a HCPCS II Modifier. In some instances, insurers instruct suppliers that a HCPCS II code must be accompanied by a code modifier to provide additional information regarding the service or item identified by the HCPCS II code. JW modifier stands for "Drug amount discarded/not administered to any patient."
