Thread: Kenalog injection

  1. #1

    Default Kenalog injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am new at Pain Management coding and am wondering--If an injection is done Bilaterally how would it be coded?
    Kenalog 40mg; Fentanyl 50 mcg; 1% Lidocaine 5cc was injected Bilaterally in the Sacroiliac joint.
    Do i code: J3301 (x4) or J3301 (x8) ?
    Thank you

    Kenalog dosage is per 10mg. So J3301x4 would be correct.

    That I knew but since it was used Bilaterally 40 on each side I believe it should be X8
