Who Should Use It?

ACCC's Oncology Drug Database is a valuable tool for all cancer care team members who need to access information on drug coding, billing, and reimbursement—including physicians, oncology nurses, pharmacists, administrators, practice managers, coders and billers, and financial advocates.

How Do I Use It?

ACCC's Oncology Drug Database is easy to use. Type a drug’s generic or brand name into a search box (partial names are also accepted) to be directed to a drug-specific webpage with information for that drug, including:

  • Billing (HCPCS, NDC) and diagnosis (ICD-9 and, beginning in 2015, ICD-10) codes
  • Medicare payment limits (does not include the reduction due to sequestration)
  • FDA-approved indications
  • Drug manufacturer information, including contact information for the medical affairs department and reimbursement specialists (for drugs that remain under patent protection).

You can also search for drugs alphabetically by 1) clicking on the first letter of a drug’s name (brand or generic), and 2) then selecting either the "List by Brand Name" or the "List by Generic Name" tab at the top of the table.
