Question:

If a drug we have used is packaged by Medicare for payment, do we have to report it on our claims?

Answer:

Hospitals should report charges for all drugs, biologicals, and radiopharmaceuticals, regardless of whether the items are paid separately or packaged, using the correct HCPCS codes for the items used. Hospitals billing for these products also should make certain that the reported units of service of the reported HCPCS code are consistent with the quantity of a drug, biological, or radiopharmaceutical that was used in the care of the patient.
