oral drugs given in office

Tammy Posted Mon 09th of January, 2017 07:26:39 AM
hello, 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. thanks

Hi,

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.
