    The ASP crosswalks are maintained by the Division of Data Analysis and Market Based Pricing to support ASP-based Medicare Part B payments only. The crosswalks are intended to help the public (including entities that submit manufacturer ASP data and providers who bill for drugs) understand which drug products (identified by NDCs) are assigned to which HCPCS billing codes. The crosswalks are not intended to be a comprehensive list of all drugs/NDCs available in the United States. The NDC to HCPCS Crosswalk also includes information on the NDC package size and the number of billable units (as defined by the HCPCS code descriptor). Comments on the file may be sent to [email protected].

    • Brolucizumab-dbll injection is used to treat wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD; an ongoing disease of the eye that causes loss of the ability to see straight ahead and may make it more difficult to read, drive, or perform other daily activities). Brolucizumab-dbll injection is also used to treat diabetic macular edema (DME; an eye disease caused by diabetes that can lead to vision loss). Brolucizumab-dbll is in a class of medications called vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) antagonists. It works by stopping abnormal blood vessel growth and leakage in the eye(s) that may cause vision loss.
