PARA logoThe Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services made a change, effective July 1, requiring Medicare Part B providers to bill, on a separate expense line with a “JW” modifier (signifying that the drugs were not administered), any unused portion of a single use vial or package of medication. Washington Hospital Services Industry Partner Para HealthCare has provided a helpful article detailing the new requirements. You can read the article here.
