    I would code an E/M if documentation supports one (chalazion dx) - along with the Jcode for the Kenalog

    OR -
    I'd code the 90772 with the Jcode for Kenalog - (no E/M)

    The "injection" of Kenalog - is the "procedure" - an injection (Jcode plus 90772 admin of the injection)

    {that's my opinion on the posted matter}
