The quarterly Texas National Drug Codes (NDC) to Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Crosswalk is now available for clinician-administered drug (CAD) processing.
The NDC-to-HCPCS Crosswalk identifies relationships between NDC and Medicaid-reimbursable Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System codes. The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) publishes the crosswalk based on quarterly additions to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services list of rebate-eligible drugs and new drugs added monthly to the First Databank pricing compendia.
HHSC wants prescribing providers to use the crosswalk to ensure that claims are accurately submitted.
Prescribers may utilize the CAD Search or download the crosswalk to review this quarter's changes. Search instructions are available. To download, scroll to the data files section and choose the clinician-administered drug index.
