When a physician, hospital or other provider or supplier must discard the remainder of a single-use vial or other single-use package after administering a dose/quantity of the drug or biological to a Medicare patient, the program provides payment for the amount of drug or biological discarded as well as the dose administered, up to the amount of the drug or biological as indicated on the vial or package label.
Regarding billing for unused portions of multi-use vials, please NOTE: Multi-use vials are not subject to payment for discarded amounts of drug or biological.
