Kenalog J3301 unit question

    Question Kenalog J3301 unit question
    Medical Coding Books
    Patient received 0.8 ml of Kenalog 40mg/ml strength. This would equate out to the patient getting 32mg of Kenalog... So, J3301 is per 10 mg. Do you bill 3 units (30mg) and eat the 2mg or 4 units (40mg) to account for the 2 mg over the 30..

    Thank you...

    It is billed as up to 10mg. so I would bill up to 40mg.
