So, the 2014 J1070 code is not valid for 2015. I know to bill J1071 to replace J1070 but I need help with the units.

2014 J1070 code description was for 100mg. 2015 J1071 is for 1mg. So, if I need to code for a 200mg I bill J1071 with 200 units?

Thanks for your help!

You are correct. You would bill J1071 with however many units were given, like 200 units given, would be billed as 200 units.

Thank you!!
