Pump refills-Morphine

Lori Posted Thu 14th of August, 2014 12:17:05 PM

Is there a new code for the preservative free morphine that is used for implanted spinal narcotic infusion pumps? We were using J2275 and review of the ASP list does not have J2275 on it anymore it has a Q9974 for morphine. The HCPCS book list J2275 but not the Q9974

Effective July 1,2014 Q9974 (Injection, Morphine Sulfate, Preservative-Free or Epidural Or Intrathecal Use, 10 mg.)

Do you know if Q9974 has the same NDC number as the J2275 since it is still the same meds?
