    J-Code Lookup

    What Is This Tool?

    Our J-Code lookup tool allows you to find all of the HCPCS (Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System) J-code (and Q-code) drugs and their respective HCPCS Details. In addition, each detail page contains an HCPCS/NDC crosswalk, a billing calculator, and drug information. 

    One of the more popular features of this tool is that it allows you to look up a Jcode by NDC OR by a drug name.

    What Are J-Codes & Q-Codes?

    'J-codes' are drugs that are typically billed through a 'medical' benefit versus a 'pharmacy' benefit under health plans, and are generally not self-administered (i.e. are administered by a health care professional). They consist of chemotherapy drugs and injectable drugs:

    • J0120-J8999 - Drugs Administered Other than Oral Method
    • J9000-J9999 - Chemotherapy Drugs

    Q-Codes are simply temporary codes that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) establish for services and supplies that do not yet have a permanent code.

    J-codes and Q-codes are part of the HCPCS Level II code set used for billing for drugs (primarily injectables), supplies, equipment, nonphysician services, and services not represented by CPT codes (Level I HCPCS).  They are often billed along with a procedure-based CPT code. 

    How To Use This Tool

    This tool allows you to search for the details of a J-code in several ways, including:

    • Drug Name
    • HCPCS Code
    • NDC

    For example, you can look up a J-code by NDC. Simply type the NDC into the search box.

    Most J-code detail pages contain a complete HCPCS/NDC crosswalk.

    This tool is free to use but its contents are not available for download or reproduction.
