According the HCPCS book J3301 is billed in 10mg incriments so if the doctor did 40 mgs in each knee that would be 80mg total so you would bill 8 units. I would also code 96372 twice one injection for each knee. Hope that helps!

I agree with the number of units 8 units as reland stated. However I do not agree with the 96372. See blow

This was a joint injection done bilaterally. I would bill 20610 with a modifer 50.

96372 is a subQ or intramusular injection.
