    I can't find this information anywhere..please help
    How would you bill:

    0.6 cc of Kenalog 40? which converts to 24mg.

    do you bill it as 3 units or 2 units.

    I am having a disagreement with the billing manager who says we should bill as 2 units,
    I say 3 units.


    Can anyone give me the link to verify this so I can have it in writing.

    Thank you!!!

    J3301 is for 10mg, so I'd go with 3 units. Depending on your local carrier's policy, you may be able to bill for the wasted drug as well. I'd check with the payer, though. Hope that helps!
