    AAPC: Back to School
    One of our family physicians administered dexamethasone sodium phosphate injection into left parietal annular alopecia lesion to help stimulate hair growth. Can anyone tell me what cpt code I would use for this service.

    Going off what you wrote, I'd use.

    CPT 11900
    HCPCS J1100

    Using the DX of 704.00 Alopecia
