    I have a question. If the patient is injected billateral knees and the doctor uses 2ml of Kenalog 40mg for each knee how many units should I use? Thanks

    According the HCPCS book J3301 is billed in 10mg incriments so if the doctor did 40 mgs in each knee that would be 80mg total so you would bill 8 units. I would also code 96372 twice one injection for each knee. Hope that helps!

    I agree with the number of units 8 units as reland stated. However I do not agree with the 96372. See blow

    This was a joint injection done bilaterally. I would bill 20610 with a modifer 50.

    96372 is a subQ or intramusular injection.
