Pass-Through Drugs
 Temporary “at least” 2 to “not more than” 3
year “pass-through” of cost for new drugs

Vaccine Changes
 Deleted vaccine
 Q2033, Influenza vaccine (flublok)
 New vaccine
 90673, Influenza vaccine, trivalent,
derived from recombinant DNA, for IM
use
19
Drug Administration
 No major changes
 Continue to reimburse for the add-on
procedures, with the exception of add-on
vaccination codes and pump reset
 90472, immunization, each additional
 90474, immunize oral/nasal, each additional
 96371, therapeutic infusion SC reset pump
 All three are now unconditionally packaged (SI
N)
20
Proposed Rule 2014
 Create 29 Comprehensive APCs with one payment
made for the primary service plus all adjunctive
services performed to support that service
 These were developed from the 29 highest cost
device dependent APCs
 There will be a new status indicator (J1) to identify
the 136 HCPCS codes which map to the 29
comprehensive APCs
21
Proposed Rule
 A single payment will be made that includes the
following when performed as part of the service:
 All DME items
 Rehab codes, including PT/OT/ST
 All drugs, except pass-through drugs (status G),
including self-administered drugs
 Recovery and extended recovery and observation
services
 Two or more comprehensive APC procedures will
result in payment for the higher paid procedure
 Add-on procedures
22
Final Rule 2014
 Comprehensive APCs have been FINALIZED, But
delayed until 1/1/2015
 Extra time to allow hospitals to perform a thorough
analysis of the impact of this change so that they can
implement changes
 CMS will apply a “degree of complexity” to each J1
procedure
23
Drugs/Biologicals/Radiopharm Dx Tests
 In 2013, the following drugs are APC status N
(unconditionally packaged) unless status G (passthru):
 Drugs with a per day cost less than threshold
 Diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals
 Contrast agents
 Anesthesia drugs
 Drugs used as a supply
 Implanted biologicals
24
Drugs/Biologicals/Radiopharm Dx Tests
 For 2014, CMS is adding more categories of
diagnostic drugs unconditionally packaged
 Drugs, biologicals, and radiopharmaceuticals
that function as supplies when used in
diagnostic tests or procedures
 Drugs and biologicals when used as supplies
in surgical procedures
25
Unconditionally Packaged in 2014
 Stress Agents
 HCPCS Code C9275, Injection, hexaminolevulinate
hydrochloride, 100 mg, per study dose
26
Self Administered Drugs
 Self-administered drugs (SAD) are considered a
statutory exclusion from Medicare benefits
 Reported in the non-covered portion of the
outpatient bill
 Use Rev Code 637 for OP billing
 For most commercial payers report with a 250
revenue code
27
SAD
 Medicare Part B does not cover drugs that are
“usually” (i.e., more than 50% of the time) selfadministered by the patient
 It is a “benefit category” denial and not a denial
based on medical necessity
 An Advance Beneficiary Notice (“ABN”) is not
required
 Therefore providers may charge the beneficiary for
an excluded drug
 If Hospital pharmacy participates (most don’t) in Part
D drug plan, then some SAD may be covered
28
NGS SAD List
 Contractors (FI/MACs) must publish a list of the
injectable drugs that are subject to the selfadministered exclusion on their Web site
 Link to NGS SAD list-- http://www.cms.gov/medicare-coveragedatabase/indexes/articlelist.aspx?Cntrctr=63&name=National%20Government%20Services,%20Inc.%20%20(

Don’t Report Admin
 Do not report the injection administration
with the SAD list drugs
30
Billing for Wastage
 The CMS encourages physicians, hospitals and other
providers and suppliers to care for and administer to
patients in such a way that they can use drugs or
biologicals most efficiently
 When a provider must discard the remainder of a single
use vial or other single use package after administering a
drug or biological to a Medicare patient, the program
provides payment for the amount of drug or biological
discarded as well as the dose administered, up to the
amount of the drug or biological as indicated on the vial
or package label
Medicare Claims Processing Manual Chapter 17 - Drugs and Biologicals
31
Wastage
 Document what was wasted
 Can be per patient documentation
 Can be included in a drug wastage policy
 Don’t bill waste for multi-use vials
 OIG has recommended FIs set up an edit that
looks for drug billing units equal to full vials for
“multi-use” vial drugs
32
Multi Use Vials
 Herceptin comes in a multiuse vial of 440 milligrams
 Herceptin, when reconstituted with BWFI and stored
properly, can be used for up to 28 days
 For multiuse vials, Medicare pays only for the
amount administered to a beneficiary and does not
pay for any discarded drug
 A payment for an entire multiuse vial is likely to be
incorrect
 This audit is part of a nationwide review of the drug
Herceptin
Report by THE OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL- December 2012 A-05-1100112
33
JW Modifier
 The JW modifier is only applied to the amount of
drug or biological that is discarded
 Not required by NGS
 Some Hospitals use the JW modifier as part of
there wastage documentation program
34
NDC Review
 National Drug Code maintained in the formulary by
the pharmacist
 11 digit code represents brand (labeler), drug and
dose, vial size
 NDC is used for billing for some payers e.g.,
Medicaid
 Periodic review is important
https://www.emedny.org/info/formfile.aspx
35
Billing Units
 Maintain Medicare billing units definition in CDM, not
vial size from formulary
 E.g., J3246 Tirofiban HCL



CDM description- Tirofiban HCL Inj 0.25mg
Formulary description- Tirofiban HCL Inj 12.5mg
1- 12.5 mg vial = 50 billing units-- J3246 x 50
 Round up partial units to whole billing units
36
Formulary to CDM Review
 Review at least annually
 Join Formulary to CDM
 Reconcile
 Formulary items not linked to CDM
 Drug CDM items with no formulary link
 Review multipliers
37
Pyxis
 Review the pharmacy Pyxis (or other automated
dispensing system)
 Links to the CDM need to be verified
 Pull sample claims and verify charge flow to
billing
38
Nuclear Medicine Procedureto-Radiolabled Product Edit
 CMS finalized the proposal to discontinue
this edit
 There will no longer be an edit to ensure
that nuclear medicine drugs are reported
with nuclear medicine procedures
 Therefore care must be taken to ensure
these drugs are correctly reported with the
appropriate charges
39
Radiology Drugs
 Drugs used for contrast and diagnostic
radiopharmaceuticals continue to be packaged
 Exception is one new pass-through drug A9520,
TC 99m Tilimanocept, dx, up to 0.5 millicuries
(was C1204 in 2013)
 Will have an off-set applied to the procedure equal to
the amount included in the procedure payment that
represents packaged drugs
 Non pass-through therapeutic
radiopharmaceuticals will be reimbursed on ASP
plus 6%
40
Devices
41
Pass-through Devices
 Category of devices eligible for transitional passthrough payment for at least 2 and up to 3 years
 Pass-through device list updated quarterly
 All of the pass-through devices for 2013 are now
packaged, one remains a status H in 2014

FB and FC Modifiers
 For devices with no cost of a partial credit, the
FB and FC modifiers will no longer be reported
 They will be reported with a value code FD if
there is a credit of 50% or most (see Table 30 for
list of APCs)
 FD value will be the credit received from the
manufacturer
 Radiopharmaceuticals will also no longer require
these modifiers since they are rarely free
43
Required Device Edit
 CMS had proposed to eliminate this edit in
2013
 In light of the delayed comprehensive
APCs and due to comments that were
received
 CMS is going to continue these edits to at
least 2015
 See Final Rule Table 7 for a listing of the
current device-dependent APCs
44
DME-POS Supplies
 Some supplies, e.g., prosthetics/orthotics, are
separately payable from the DMEPOS fee
schedule
 CMS has finalized the proposal to update the SI
for all supplies, except prosthetics/orthotics, to
unconditionally packaged (“N”)
45
POS – Prosthetics Orthotics
 POS are covered under Part B when furnished
incident to a physician services or order ..
 “Payment for prosthetics and orthotics is made
on the basis of a fee schedule whether it is billed
to the DMERC or the FI...
 Institutional providers bill their FI for prosthetics
and orthotics devices and supplies. Generally,
Medicare does not pay for DME in a facility. For
hospital outpatient DME, bills go to the
appropriate DMERC. ”

POS – Prosthetics Orthotics
 Off the Shelf Orthotics
 Common POS found on hospital CDM and claims
 Require minimal self-adjustment for appropriate use
