Pro Pharma Pharmaceutical Consultants, Inc., a pharmaceutical consultant organization which focuses on data analytical expertise, announced today that it has introduced NEW and IMPROVED Enhancements to the JCode Calculator™ Third Quarter 2010 Update (issued 10-11-10) via their secured web access for claims and billing professionals.
Pro Pharma has developed this Standardized Injectable Fee Schedule to assist with management of claims payment of self injectables, vaccines, immunizations and cancer therapeutic agents.
Key Areas of Client Interest Are:

• Identification of diagnosis for a drug.

Every entry on the Jcode Calculator™ has a field that allows Billing and Claims Professionals to click and see all JCodes that pertain to that drug. This is only one of numerous filters that are user friendly, and customization is available per client request.”
