I would like to know if there is a HCPC code for oral drugs given in the office? Our pediatrics office currently gives the oral form of Acetaminophen, ibuprofen, aspirin and diphenhydramine. I can not seem to find a HCPC code for these drugs.

Medications are need to be billed by pharmacy. If your doctor is giving the drug in the office then he can use this to increase the level of MDM for office visit. If you administer the oral form in a tablet, capsule, solution or suspension form, use code J8499 - PRESCRIPTION DRUG, ORAL, NON CHEMOTHERAPEUTIC.
