Are you billing Synvisc One? The quantity for that is 48, and yes, if the doctor injected it bilaterally you will double the units and bill on one line. If you separate them and bill on two lines, the second line will be rejected as a duplicate charge. Also be sure to bill the intra-articular injection codes, which I have been successful in billing on two lines with RT and LT rather than one line with the 50 modifier. As far as the payment, you will need to check your local Medicare Carrier's pricing for drugs. If you need help finding that information, let me know.
