You may want to post the Op note so people can review it. Are you wanting to know the injection procedure or the medication?

"Injected Kenalog 10mg mixed 50:50 with Lidocaine 2%, 0.67ml total to the lateral ankle gutter where capsulitis symptoms were painfully palpated, right."

The doctor called it a 20600, but that is for a small joint and the ankle is an intermediate joint. I think he did that becaus he was also billing 20605 x 2 for bilateral injections into other areas of the ankles. So, what would 20605 x4 look like? Patient has Humana Gold MCR replacement.
THANKS
