Does anyone have experience billing drugs to California workers comp carriers? I currently do billing for an MD (pain management specialist). Since I have not billed drugs to work comp in the past, he gave me instructions to use cpt code 99070 on the claim form for all drugs and to send a copy of the drug sticker (which has the ndc #, qty, etc) along with the claim. I went one step further and created a word doc that I also list the ndc#, name, qty and price because the sticker is hard to read at times. Some carriers pay for the drugs but others will deny stating something to the effect of "proper cpt code needed".
Does anyone else bill drugs to w/c in this manner? Is the correct way to bill?
Thanks in advance for any input.
