Hi,

Can someone help me in determining correct UOM/Quantity for J1885

Strength is 60mg/2mL

I'm not sure if I'm missing the question because you appear to answer yourself.  If they are billing for 60mg it would be 4 units.  Please let me know if I missed what you are asking.

ME is a recognized billing qualifier that may be used to identify milligrams as the NDC unit of measure however, drug costs are generally created at the UN or ML
level.   Some insurance carriers may require you to convert to the UN or ML.
