Q: Which drugs and biologicals have pass-through status for 2014?
 
A: Several drugs and biologicals will have pass-through status. The list, along with the corresponding HCPCS codes, is included in Table 33 of the 2014 OPPS Final Rule. Note that several HCPCS codes changed for 2014, so make sure you review these items in their entirety in the table. The table lists the current HCPCs code for 2013 and the new/updated/same HCPCS code for 2014. These are assigned status indicator G (pass-through drugs and biologicals).
 
Editor’s note: Andrea Clark, RHIA, CCS, CPCH, chairman, CEO, and founder of Health Revenue Assurance Associates, Inc., in Plantation, Fla., answered this question.
