The HCPCS code for REMICADE® is J1745, described as: “Injection infliximab, 10 mg .” Thus, each 10-mg dose equals one billing unit, or 1/10th of a vial. It is important to understand that when billing for REMICADE®, each 100-mg vial of drug represents 10 units of J1745 . The following chart illustrates the correlation between vials, milligrams, and billing units.
