Is it correct to bill code 20610 twice if the doctor has to perform an aspiration of fluid from the joint for one diagnosis then perform an injection of medication for a separate diagnosis? To my understanding these are 2 separate procedures performed for different reasons. Is this correct?

No, you can not separately bill for the aspiration and injection if done on the same joint. There is plenty of supporting documentation on this if you google it.
