Hi Ida,

   I found the following info for 2008 HCPCs codes for nebulizer treatments:

Code Narrative

J7602  Albuterol, all formulations including separated isomers, inhalation solution, FDA-approved final product, non-compounded, administered through DME, concentrated form, per 1 mg (Albuterol) or per0.5 mg (Levalbuterol)
J7603  Albuterol, all formulations including separated isomers, inhalation solution, FDA-approved final product, non-compounded, administered through DME, unit dose, per 1 mg (Albuterol) or per 0.5 (Levalbuterol)
J7604  Acetylcysteine, inhalation solution, compounded product, administered through DME, unit dose form, per gram
