    Default Depo Testosterone Injections

    AAPC: Back to School

    How do you bill for Depo Testosterone Injections when the patient requires 300 mg and the J1080 code is specifically for 200 mg?

    Thank you!

    Default coding depo testosterone

    The code J1080 covers 200 mg
    code J1070 covers 100mg gives you the total of 300mg

    Use J1070 x 3 units for depo testosterone 300 mg.

    Thanks for both replies! It sounds like you can do it a couple different ways then.
