Cortisteroid Injection

    Default Cortisteroid Injection

    If we do a Cortisteroid Injection like a code 20526, 20552, 20610... Do we charge for the actual medicine that is put in the syringe or not. I thought it is all included in the above codes when done. What do you think?

    I bill for the medications used. They are not included in the procedure code.
