Quantity to be dispensed (Should correspond with the total amount of each item to be provided per refill. This information may be expressed as cans, bottles/bags, cases, or billing units [1 unit=100calories]).
Under this new guidance the contractors are expecting language to appear on Detailed Written Orders along the lines of:
- 1200 calories per day X 30 days X 12 refills
- 120 units at 100 calories X 30 days X 12 refills
- If the patient is on a formula that consists of 300 calories per can, the suitable example might read, 4 cans per day X 30 days X 12 refills.
