    Default Synvisc For Intra-articular Injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    Attempting To Bill Bilateral Synvisc Injections. Medicare Has Paid For 20610 50, But Cannot Get The Synvisc Paid. Have Billed J7322 X 2 And Also J7322 Rt And J7322 Lt.

    Any Suggestions?

    Default Synvisc

    Sorry, Guess That Would Have Helped.

    We Are Using 715.16.

    Is There A Medicare Coverage Article For This? I Have Been Unable To Locate One.
