Reporting NDC code for Unclassified drugs

Unclassified Drugs

An unclassified drug is defined as a drug that does not have a specific, designated HCPCS/CPT code. Unclassified HCPCS/CPT codes should only be used when a specific HCPCS/CPT code is not available for the drug being billed. Claims being sumitted with an unspecified HCPCS/CPT code when there is a designated HCPCS/CPT code for that drug will result in a denial of payment.
The following guidelines are for providers who submit unclassifed drug codes on the CMS-1500 claim form or its electronic equivalent:
Apply the appropriate unclassified drug HCPCS/CPT (e.g. J3490, J3590, J9999, etc) that is aligned with the billed NDC Code. The following identifies the list of unclassified drug HCPCS/CPT codes:

• 90399 – Unlisted Immune Globulin
