What is the cpt code for the medication Lupron depot 11.25 mg, and what is the cpt code for the injection process (is J1950 ? ). please advice. thanks

The correct code for Lupron depends on how it is used. HCPCS codes J9217 (leuprolide acetate [for depot suspension], 7.5 mg) and J9218 (leuprolide acetate, per 1 mg) are categorized as chemotherapy drugs for treatment of malignancies (e.g., prostate cancer). On the other hand, HCPCS code J1950 (injection, leuprolide acetate [for depot suspension], per 3.75 mg) is used for management of noncancerous conditions, such as endometriosis and preoperative hematologic improvement of patients with anemia, secondary to uterine fibroids, when used concomitantly with iron therapy
