Nov. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- (ST. LOUIS) — Mobius Therapeutics, LLC announced today the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has assigned a product-specific Healthcare Common Procedures Coding System (HCPCS) code for Mitosol® (mitomycin for solution) 0.2mg/vial, Kit for Ophthalmic Use.  Mitosol is used as an adjunct to ab externo glaucoma surgery.   The new J-code, J7315, becomes effective on January 1, 2013.  

"This is an important milestone for Mobius Therapeutics, and we are very pleased that CMS has issued a J-code for Mitosol®," said Ed Timm, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Mobius Therapeutics, LLC.  "While it may take up to three months for the J-code to be loaded into the entire payer system, the J-code facilitates more rapid reimbursement for providers. Mitosol is manufactured under cGMP controls and provides assured dosing concentration with consistent potency and sterility.  In light of the on-going concerns related to the sterility and quality assurance of sterile filled medications, Mitosol’s quality manufacturing and convenience helps providers and patients with peace of mind.”
