JW modifier

Billing with JW modifier is now required as of July 2016 to bill for waste of pharmaceuticals. Working on a solution to this requirement. Wondering if anyone knows if waste includes what pharmacists compound in the Pharmacy Department in preparation for administration or does it just relate to waste after administration to a patient, or both? Your thoughts?

Good news! It has been postponed until January 1st so we have some time to figure this out. I'm not sure if you saw this.
