Self-Administered Drug Exclusion List and Biologicals Excluded from Coverage - Medical Policy Article (R7) (A52527)

The link below lists drugs that are not covered by Medicare, the effective date of non-coverage, and the rationale. (Please see "Process for Determining Self-Administered Drug Exclusions - Medical Policy Article") The column, "Brand Names," provides one or more examples but not all. Information about drugs not separately reimbursed or not covered for reasons other than "usually self-administered," is found in other Part A and Part B MAC publications and sites.

In the interest of consistent Medicare, the CGS Administrators Part A MAC will follow the coverage decision for self-administered drugs as determined by the Part B MAC in each respective state. HCPCS codes for the same drugs that apply only to providers that bill the Part A MAC (e.g., HCPCS codes used for drugs billable under the Outpatient Prospective Payment System [OPPS]) are included when applicable.
