Medical and Nursing Specialists, Physicians, and Physician Assistants Handbook : 9 Physician : 9.2 Services, Benefits, Limitations, and Prior Authorization : 9.2.39 Clinician-Administered Drugs : 9.2.39.7 Single and Multi-Use Vials

9.2.39.7
A single-dose (or single-use) vial of medication intended for administration through injection or infusion contains a single dose of medication. A multi-dose (or multi-use) vial of medication intended for administration through injection or infusion contains more than one dose of medication.
Many drugs have doses based on factors such as height weight and initial tolerance of the drug. It is important to clearly document how the dosage is calculated so those who review the patient health record can verify the dosage amount when reviewing the claim.
Texas Medicaid does not pay for any drug wastage from single-use or multi-use vials.
Other resources on clinician-administered drugs may be found online by visiting the TMHP, CDC and CMS websites.
