Pharmacy

For the Week of April 21, 2014

Question:

Are there any add-on codes that CMS will pay separately? I am thinking specifically of drug-administration services.

Answer:

Most procedures described by add-on codes in the hospital outpatient PPS are packaged under CMS’s new 2014 policy. The only exception are add-on codes for drug-administration services and for 2014 add-on codes assigned to device-dependent ambulatory payment classifications (APCs). These will continue to receive separate payment.
