I am confused about what codes to use to report aprepitant for chemotherapy-induced emesis. Can you provide some guidance?

Hospital pharmacies should note that several changes have been made to national coverage determination (NCD) 110.18 for aprepitant for chemotherapy-induced emesis. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced the code changes in the following transmittals during the last few months.
