Title: unlisted drug codes
Post by: nikki on April 21, 2009, 11:41:19 AM
I work for a specialty practice that is subdivided within the practice. our physicians administer drugs in the office.  we have been using the J9999 code for all unclassified drugs regardless of the diagnosis.  By definition, J9999 is the code for unclassified chemotherapy (antineoplastic) drugs, however we have been using this code exclusively.  My question is, should J9999 only be used for antineoplastic drugs or can it be used for all types of unclassified drugs?
