« on: January 03, 2012, 01:55:55 PM »
most of my flu vaccines are being rejected - reason: NDC code - units etc....

I'm thinking there must be some other issue going on to cause the rejection.  I don't believe flu vaccines would be rejected for NDC codes etc.  I would double check your coding to see if you are using an incorrect code.

thank you for response - it is actually my clearing house that gives me the rejection: missing national drug unit count - the dx that i submit is V04.81

Have you called them?  They may just be having an issue on their end.

Hi,
Aren't the rejections as a result of the  5010 requirements for drug reporting?
