Why doesn't DermCoder display Fees for J-codes?

DermCoder DOES show fees for these codes. But you are looking in the wrong place.

The J-codes are not published as part of the regular Medicare Physician’s Fee Schedule because they are not based on Relative Value Units (like E/M services and procedures).

Instead, J-codes are published in a separate listing called the Medicare Part B Drug Average Sales Price and are based on 106% of the Average Wholesale Price (AWP).

To look up this information in DermCoder click the J-Codes and NDC Codes button on the bottom of the main DermCoder CPT screen. And you can search for the codes in the next screen.

If you are logged in, you can access that page here as well: http://www.dermcoder.com/jcodes.aspx
