Charges for Human Milk Fortifier (Prolact)

Hi all! For those of you at facilities with NICU's that are using Prolact, are you charging for it? The popular opinion is that it is a food/supplement and should not be charged for. However, I believe a case can be made otherwise. It is actually considered a biologic, and there are facilities out there charging for it. Interested to know how others within this community are handling this. If your facility is charging for it, what rev codes are you using? How is it being stored and dispensed?

Thanks in advance!



  • We made use of Price Transparency by doing some Googling to figure out how other hospitals were charging for it, and decided to go with Revenue Code 0250 without a HCPCS or CPT.
