    We give a lot of 120mg of DepoMedrol injections. We use 80mg multidose vials. My billing office is telling me I cannot use J1030 because we do not have 40mg vials in the office. I disagree because it is a multidose vial and the only way to bill 120mg is with the two different codes. suggestions?

    I think your billing office is misinformed. The charge(s) is by dose given, so if a patient is given 120mg of Depo Medrol, you could do three units of J1030.
