Kenalog injections for keloids

    Default Kenalog injections for keloids
    Medical Coding Books
    Dr has been injecting Kenalog to lesions after removal of keloids. This is usually not a planned procedure, but as needed. This is usually during the global period. I say this should not be charged, but he feels that it is not a planned procedure and should be charged. Please give me your input on this charge of J3301

    Are you coding for the facility or physician ? Because we use 11900 for keloid injections.

    We use 11900 (injection) and J3301 (Kenalog). If this is a staged procedure couldn't you use a 58 modifier and see if they pay?

    Any new thoughts on this?
