Kenalog/Bupivacaine Injection for Lumbar RF Neurotomy

    Default Kenalog/Bupivacaine Injection for Lumbar RF Neurotomy
    Medical Coding Books
    My physician did a lumbar RF neurotomy. At the end of the procedure before removing the RF cannulae, each site was injected with 1 ml of a mixture containing 40 MG Kenalog and 4 cc Bupivacaine. He is billing this with J3301. Is that correct?

    J3301 is the correct code for the Kenalog. Just make sure you are billing for the correct number of units. 1cc of 40 mg Kenalog is 4 units.

    Do you code the Bupivacaine drug?
