|The HCPCS Drug table contains over 1,400 common drugs, listed by Trade Name and Generic name. These can be found by scrolling the list, or performing a search for a drug name.
Note that this table was slated to be replaced by the National Drug Codes (NDC) as part of HIPAA implementation, but this portion of the legislation has been postponed. There are over 102,000 NDC codes which contain 10 digits and 2 or 3 dash separators.
Flash Code includes them all, just perform a CPT or HCPCS search and select the Allow NDC option.

This Drug table can be frustrating, since it contains a very limited set of codes, often times you will need to use a general drug code when the specific one you wish to use is not included on this list. When you do, it is likely that you will need to submit documentation with the bill in order to justify the medication used during the delivery of patient care.
Keep in mind the NDC codes will eventually replace this table, you should check with your insurance carrier to see if they are ahead of medicare's timeline for implementation.
