New J code for Fasenra

*INJECTION CODES FOR FASENRA VARY BY INSURANCE

There are 374 changes to the HCPCS codes for the year of 2019. Some of them had to do with increasing number of new injectable medications/drugs that have saturated the market.

If you are a provider that treats patients with Fasenra, then up until now you have been probably using J3490 – unlisted cpt code, to bill for the mediction itself.

However, as of January 1,2019 for any dates of services on that day or going forward the new J code is assigned to Fasenra:

J0517- Injections, Benralizumab, 1mg

Package size: 30mg single-dose pre-filled syringes
