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.
- Transmittal R1665OTN, which is available at https://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Guidance/Transmittals/2016-Transmittals-Items/R1665OTN.html.
- Transmittal 1630OTN, which is available at https://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Guidance/Transmittals/2016-Transmittals-Items/R1630OTN.html.
