Billing for Sample Drug
Question: Our administrator told us to bill a sample medication as $0.01 along with the injection. Shouldn’t the charge be zero since we used a sample?
Answer: You may have to bill with a penny to get the claim through your clearinghouse, otherwise the line item may be left off the claim line. You then adjust the penny when you receive the remittance advice.
