Pharmacy Question for the Week of May 14, 2018

Posted Posted in Pharmacy, Question of the Week

Question:

We are looking for clarity about billing for immunosuppressive drugs. If a supplier mailed an immunosuppressive drug shortly before the end of a beneficiary’s inpatient stay and used the mailing date as the date of service, would the claim be rejected if this happened because the claim’s date of service preceded the beneficiary’s date of discharge?
